From ‘What it Was' towards ‘What it Ought to Be'—The Montrose Bicentenary

  • Kenneth M. G. Keddie (a1)

She had been greatly concerned about the appalling conditions under which many of the mentally ill were kept in the local Tolbooth. She appreciated the suffering experienced by these pauper lunatics, and perhaps also, being married to a Jacobite who had spent 20 years in exile in Sweden after fleeing from Culloden, had brought its own understanding.
