Excerpt from The Life of Sir William Wallace, the Governor General of Scotland: And Hero of the Scottish Chiefs
The history of human nature, as it is exhibited in the Scot tish character, amply demonstrates that no means have been more successful, no motive more powerful, to raise the 'native energy and to stimulate the native valour of Scotsmen, thaii to give a lively and accurate description of those wars in which their heroic fathers encountered dangers, endured hardships, braved death, nobly conquered or bravely died in defence of the rights and liberties of their native coup try. Is there a young Scotsman in existence, who glories in be ing a native of Scotland, that free and independent Caledonia, that can read the wonderful achievements Of Sir William Wal lace, and of those heroes who fought under his banner, without feeling a portion of that generous and magnanimous ﬂame which fired his soul, directed his councils, and sharpened his Claymore? Is there an aged Scotsman in existence, who glories in being a native of Caledonia, that can recount the glories of her Chieftains and her warriors, without being fired With a love of his country? Can any Scotsman divest liimselfofthis natural love and fight against his' country If there be any such among us, let them be deemed traitors to Caledonia. Awake 2 awake to ancient sentiments of courage display your native souls, ye true heart ed sons of Caledonia Ruack, Ruack, Chebodi.'
