SIR,—In his review of Culloden, by John Prcbble, Mr. Rees writes: 'When Waverly tsici meets Charles Edward after his wanderings in the High- lands, he gasps, "A Prince to live and die under." ' In Scott's Waverley the hero of the novel is pre- sented to Charles Edward at Holyrood, during the Jacobite occupation of Edinburgh, not after Culloden and the defeated Prince's adventures in the Highlands and islands.

Mr. Rees also refers to 'Lord George Gordon, the Jacobite General of the "Forty-Five."' This should be Lord George Murray.
