The history of the present rebellion in Scotland. From the departure of the Pretender's son from Rome, down to the present time. In which is a full account of the conduct of this young invader, from his first arrival in Scotland; with the several progresses he made there and likewise a very particular relation of the Battle of Preston, with an exact list of the slain, wounded, and prisoners, on both sides. Taken from the relation of Mr. James Macpherson, who was an eye-witness of the whole, and who took the first opportunity of leaving the rebels, into whose service he was forced, and in which he had a captain's commission. [Two lines in Latin from Ovid]

Sometimes attributed to Henry Fielding. James Macpherson is probably an invented source.
