Here are the adventures of the son of a Scottish officer in French service. The boy, brought up by a Glasgow bailie (magistrate), is arrested for aiding a Jacobite agent, escapes, is wrecked on the French coast, reaches Paris, and serves with the French army at Dettingen. He kills his father's foe in a duel, and escaping to the coast, shares the adventures of Prince Charlie, serving with him at Culloden. He finally settles happily in Scotland.
