    Recommended - a good read for adherents of historical Scottish daily life and political happenings.

    These writings are sometimes in Latin, Scots, and mostly English, with a good rasher of French languages . They do get rather involved with daily life and political issues of the day. Altogether they are an enjoyable learning experience.- Recommended by me for those of a historical bent.
