Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'Professor Gardiner, in the 2nd volume of his "Great Civil War", has given so much prominence to the character and actions of the Great Marquis of Montrose, that I think an article drawing attention to the Scottish hero as he appears in the pages of our latest Historian of that period, might interest many readers. I can at least write with a thorough knowledge of the subject, as I have not only carefully read Professor Gardiner's volumes, but have been for many years engaged in the study of Montrose's life and times.'
