Wester Ross (1744)

Two booksellers from Edinburgh wrote to a friend in New England, sharing with him news of the spread of spiritual awakening in this remote district in Wester Ross. They wrote that, although no minister served the Parish, ?their schoolmaster, who was a pious man, has travelled amongst them and instructed them? they have formed societies in sundry places? there they pray, sing psalms and instruct one another. Their school-master goes round them; so that through the year here is not a Sabbath of 10 at his own house. His Presbytery? allows him to explain the Scripture he reads? he calls also on the people to give their thoughts on sundry passages of Scripture? The name of school-master is Mr Hugh Cameron.?
