Reading Sir Walter:

Rob Roy 

(Chapter 27) Discussions about the Union

Read by Paul Henderson Scott

My first extract is from Rob Roy. It is a passage describing a journey north from Glasgow to the Highlands by Baillie Nichol Jarvie and he is accompanied amongst others by Andrew Fairservice, a groom or master of the stables, whom had been working in England and had recently seized the chance to come back to Scotland.

The second extract is from Tales of a Grandfather. The final passage is from The Letters of Malachi Malagrowther.
