dc.description.abstractThis work is an attempt to make available, in a scholarly and critical edition, a minor text of James Boswell, A Letter to the People of Scotland on the Alarming Attempt to Infringe the Articles of the Union, and Introduce a most Pernicious Innovation, by Diminishing the Number of the Lords of Session, 1785, which has not been republished since the original edition, and which is not easily available to readers outside major research centres. I have endeavoured to give footnotes to the dramatis personae of the work, and also to provide the major historical data necessary to understand the political and social setting of the Letter. An introduction outlining this setting and giving the pertinent bibliographical data has been included. This work was edited with reference to the Manuscript of the Letter, in the Mary Hyde collection, and I have included a Table of Variants in which is listed the changes from the manuscript to the text.
