Most widely held works by John Almon
A letter to the Right Honourable Charles Jenkinson by John Almon ( )
51 editions published between 1779 and 1957 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"That system of policy by which the legislators of Great Britain have governed the Highlands for some years past, has been the parent of evils, which those august assemblies certainly did not foresee. ... [I]t is particularly enacted, that the mutiny-act, &c. shall be read to the men once in every two months. This operation, though performed with the utmost punctuality and exactness in all regiments that understand English, was never known to have been performed before any of his Majesty's Highland troops, in any language intelligible to them..." The author protests the assignment of capital punishments to Highland troops who speak only Scottish Gaelic. He also protests the martial law and the brutality of military discipline. He describes the case of Mary Jones, whose husband was taken by a press gang (the Spanish had attacked the Falkland Islands), and who became destitute and hanged, in 1777, for theft. He describes punished soldiers who, after being flogged, "generally proceed from bad to worse." Soldiers who complained were accused of mutiny. Chaplains appointed to them did not speak a word of Gaelic; one John Scott, Bishop of Dunkeld, asked the pope to discharge him from Argyleshire. Highlanders were ordered to give up their native dress and kilts "and the people were restricted to every thing which was diametrically opposite." The British had a policy of "annihilation of the Galic language." The author offers an obvious solution: translate the articles of war into Gaelic and appoint chaplains and surgeons who speak Gaelic
