To ARCHIBALD CAMPBELL1
Fraser, Scotts of Buccleuch, ii. 406; Rae 246 (reference).
25 Dec. 1768 Kirkcaldy
Dear Sir,—I have sent by this day’s post the discharge you wish for Mr. John Ross;2 he is the gentleman I mentioned to you before. He will deliver it to you to–morrow, and you may either pay the money to him, or give him an order upon the bank for it. I am very much obliged to you for your friendly remembrance of me.
I received lately a letter from Sir James Johnstoune.3 He has explained to you what is Mr. Scott of Davington’s claim, as heir of Rennaldburn, upon the Duke of Buccleuch.4 If it would not be too much trouble to you I should be much obliged to you if you could let me know in two lines wherein it consists.
I ever [am], dear Sir, Your most affectionate humble servant,
[1 ]Law–agent to the Duke of Buccleuch; see Letters 41 and 44.
[2 ]Ross was presumably Smith’s law–agent in Edinburgh.
[3 ]Of Westerhall, fa. of Smith’s friend William Johnstone (Pulteney).
[4 ]Possibly some affair of feudal property: the Duke was the chief of the Scott family.
