Written by the author to David Gardner, Esq. who was a cornet in Sir John Cope's regiment of Dragoons and the son of the late Col. Gardnier. This battle is not a battle honour for British Regiments. The regiments present at the battle were: Gardiner’s (13th) and Hamilton’s (14th) Dragoons, Guise’s (6th), Lee’s (44th), Murray’s (46th) and Lascelles (47th) Foot. The Col was killed at Prestonpans southeast of Edinburg in Scotland during the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745. The Royal Army took a horrific beating by the Scottish. Much of this account speaks of Gardners family history and his conversion to Christianity. Account has been rebound in beautiful marble cover with gold and black label. Original text with uneven cut pages and yellowing due to age. Also contains an Elegy on the death of Col. Gardiner by Rev. Mr. Thomas Gibbons. Pags 139-141 have the top right corner torn out with a very small amount of text missing, otherwise complete. Rare. ; 161 pages
