Do you know if there was any contact/friendship to the Earl of Dumfries ( His House was built 1754 -1759 about the same time as Auchinleck House)
I believe that he wrote or was friends with lord Mountstuart, Earl of Bute whos family later inherited the House. Any Thoughts?
I have been told that a Gateway/ Entrance to Dumfries House was built that required access from Boswell lands, it appears this was not forthcoming. Again any thoughts?
James Boswell's uncle John was a member of a sect known as the Glasites.
