Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter from John Argo, Peterhead to Patrick Rose, Banff. He had left Banff where there was insufficient business for him and complains of taxes imposed on citizens with small businesses. Comments on the present burdens: ‘nothing could be urged in their vindication in their taking concern with the French Revolution, when they only meant to reform their own internal government, without troubling any neighbouring estates, until all Europe leagued together against them; & had not that been the case, Bonapart had never been heard of’.
