From today's copy of " Old Toddie's daily Edinburgh Advetiser - incorporating MacDonald's Weekly."
News has reached Auld reekie of another dastardly and vile invasion by the French and their highland cohorts. An eye witness, the Reverend Mac Farlane , who galloped overnight from the North of Scotland, saw with his own good eye ( his other was put out by jacobites in '45) the hordes gathering and marching south. Be on your guard for they are a coming , he warned crowds gathering at the Mercat Cross for news. The Edinburgh Town Guard are upon standby and we await the response of the Authorities.
