ExtraH of a Letter from Brouchtiey 29 N:-vetnber \ 745. ' I received yours, in which you complain that we have * not entered into Aifociations here, as they have done in .* England. At that Time it was not in our Povyer, on * Account of the Grand AiTociation, but as foon as the Re^ * bels left this Country, I addrefs'd myfelf tb my Neigh- * bours with Succefs; for I prevailed on the Provofts, the * fe'ther Magiftrates, and Inhabitants of Brouchtie, Bancho-� ria^ Peter Culter, Sandend, Dyce, Garcock, Inch, * Oyne, Raincy Tarves, Ne^burgh, Skirdufton, Strichen, � Auchtcrlefsj Banes-holcj Tetterletter, Daucot, Aber-' chirder, Gowkftohes, andDalquarchie. The above Pa- rifhcs, one with another, can fend 300 good Ibut brave Fellows each. They have provided Al-Ms for themfelves, and are to ferve four Months on their own Expences. befides them there will be 300 Men from Metrofs Slate-Quarry, and as many from the Quarries of Culfamond. � They will join the noble Earl of Loudon, and we hope will give a good Account of the Rebels at Perth'. Our greateft Fear is, that they will march South to join their Feliow Rebels; but if they do, we ftiall take care how 'they return. We are hopeful before this comes to your Hand, that the brave Duke of Cumberland has entirely ' routed the Rebel Army in England, and then Marfhal ' Wade's Forces, and our loyal AffociatorsAvill have the ' Perth Rebels betwixt two Fires. By what you write, I ' judge the Englifh think all Scotchmen Rebels.
