Excerpt from A Scots Earl, in Covenanting Times: Being, Life and Times of Archibald, 9th Earl of Argyll (1629-1685)
In writing the life of the Marquess of Argyll we were declared by some of our critics to be in the position of a barrister holding a brief for a client. In the case of his son, the 9th Earl, no such simile is called for, as the general consensus of public opinion both in his own time and in later generations has been favourable to him. In dealing, therefore, with his character and career we have not had, as in the case of his father, to undeceive the prejudiced and to track down the calumniator as he pursued his devious and unsavoury way.
