Saw Archibald McNab of Kinell. He promised to pay the Interest of my bond [gap] the same as formerly by his uncle.
Note – comment from guest blogger John Harrison:
Kinneill? I think this is Kinell on Lochtayside which was McNab territory – see
Gillies, William A.
In Famed Breadalbane: The Story of the Antiquities, Lands and People of a Highland District, The Clunie Press, 1980. p. 111 etc;
Archibald was the nephew of Francis who appears in the Raeburn portrait on the whisky bottles; both were rogues of the first water, so one fears for Dr Lucas’s cash, certainly if they did pay it was likely out of the profits of smuggling.
