Scott, David


Annals and Statistics of the Original Secession Church: till its Disruption and Union with the Free Church of Scotland in 1852, 1886, 612 pages

Scott was a Free Church minister that was very acquainted and friendly with men of the Secession Church.  He sought to give a faithful narrative of their whole history and their union with the Free Church in order to preserve their memory.  Chapter 7 gives the account of the history leading up to the union, with the thought of its various leaders in both churches.  In particular, give careful consideration to the view and reasons of the covenanter Dr. Thomas M’Crie the younger on page 181, as also signed by the majority of the Original Seceders, that the Free Church is the true Church of Scotland and fulfills the terms of the Solemn League and Covenant upon which union is to be made.
