The History of Leith

Thus, an effectual end is put to the most distant idea of disaffection

” On Sunday, the 25th of May last,” says The
Gentleman’s Magazine for 1788, ” the king, queen,
and Prince of Wales were prayed for by name, and
the rest of the royal family, in the usual manner,
in all the nonjuring chapels in this city (Edinburgh)
and Leith. The same manner of testifying the
loyalty of the Scotch Episcopalians will also be
observed in every part of the country, in consequence
of the resolution come to by the bishops
and clergy of that persuasion. Thus, an effectual
end is put to the most distant idea of disaffection
in any part of His Majesty’s dominions to his royal
person and government.”
