12 July 1813

There has been a Schism or disagreement in this town council.  One  party met to choose a Provost and a Baillie in the Room of Provost Conel and Baillie Sutherland.  The other party would not attend however William Anderson Bookseller was chosen provost and Robert Gilles Craigs was chosen a Baillie.  The Town Clerk refused to act.  Stirling has a most pitiful low set of Magistrates and town council for several years past.  The more respectable citizens seem to despise being concerned with government of the Town.

The minutes of Stirling Town Council, including details of local elections, are available to search at the Council Archives.
