At Linlithgow, in the 94th year of his age, Mr William Wilson, senior, shoemaker there. There were several occurrences in the life of this worthy old man deserving of record. He witnessed the battle of Prestonpans, and saw the fall of the brave and virtuous Colonel Gardner. He was on the plains of Abram with the immortal Wolfe, and bore a part of the arduous duties of the ever-memorable day when that lamented hero fell. He was also at the sieges of Havannah and Louisburg. He used to remark that he lived in "three" Kings' reigns -saw "three" commanding officers fall-was a member of "three" mason lodges, and had "three" descendants in the direct line, all William Wilsons. He was highly respected in all the societies to which he belonged; and one of them (the Hopetoun Lodge of Bathgate) cheerfully pays this tribute to his memory.
