Pinned toot

I guess my first toot would have to be to let folk know the 'Treaty of Union Articles' (2019) is available in paperback & kindle versions.

telling us exactly what the issues are with the union between Scotland & England.

Information that's incredibly still so relevant today.

Lovely letter, to acknowledge receipt of the 'Treaty of Union Articles,' from our Deputy First Minister, John Swinney ☺️

Railway Incidents, July 1900.

Reminder these articles aren't for the faint-hearted.

For RSH's 2nd birthday & to celebrate getting all HB 'Treaty of Union Articles' to good homes I've sent off PB copies to Dr Kelsey Williams at Stirling Uni for literary review & Dr Amy Blakeway at St. Andrews Uni for historical review. We'll see what happens ☺️

It's RSH.com's 2nd Birthday! Thank you to everyone who makes this venture so worthwhile 😊

@Phooney1 is working away on PS trying to get the pencilled inscription & date more legible. Will post a pic of what he comes up with. So far it looks like "E. B. Galusha," (month) maybe "18"/"13," then "1840." I think it also says "from his father." He'd have been 50 in 1840.

Someone had posted his intention to run an article about James MacPherson 2mo. So I grabbed my copy of MacPherson's 'Ossian' to ask if it was the same MacPherson. I noticed the name inscribed. It's signed with E. B. Galusha. There's a faint pencilled year 1840 on the previous page which fits with the only one I could find on Google. He was a NY anti-slavery activist & "1 of 15 Underground Railroad stationmasters." Found book's receipt and it turns out I repatriated it from the US. I wonder... 🤔
