Re: Sir John Sinclair's History of the Revenue.

Dear Sinclair:
I have a post card of the famous Raeburn portrait of Sir John in front of me
as I type this.  It was purchased by my father in Scotland at the National
Gallery in 1972. It is part of my collection of Sir Johniana.
It says:
            National Gallery of Scotland

and aside from the rather formal:
"This space may be used for printed or written matter"  &
"The Address only to be written here"

there is nothing else... no "James"  no "Jamie" .....  nada, bupkis.
