Prince celebrates the victory "over the Pretender's Party in the North of Scotland." The Pretender is called thus, "not so much because he pretends to be the Son of King James II; as because he pretends in Opposition to all the Rights, Laws and Constitutions of the British Nation, to be their Sovereign." His ancestor Charles I entered into a "Popish Match" with a "French Papist." The Civil War resulted.
Prince treats the details of the various claims to the throne, and the evils of the Popish Pretender.
