Eighteenth General Meeting of the Cameronians in 1699 #History #Scotland
The eighteenth post-Revolution general meeting of the Cameronian Society people may have witnessed first steps towards the publication of Cloud of Witnesses fifteen years later…
18 General Meeting at Crawfordjohn, 5 April, 1699.
Issues arising from the Glasgow conference with disunited brethren were to be answered at the next general meeting by the shire correspondences concerned.
Mr. James Kid, or if sick, Mr Robert Smith or Robert Speirs, along with Thomas Gillespie [in Closeburn parish?], John Muirhead, John Knox and Robert Knox, were to go to Queensferry on 18 April to meet James Currie, in Pentland, ‘the collector’ for the General Meeting, to receive an account of his collectorship.
