  1745 Rebellion
Progress of the Rebels

The following is the Pardon offered to the Rebels.
Field marshal of his majesty's forces, one of his majesty's most honourable privy council, lieutenant-general of the ordnance, and colonel of one of his majesty's regiments of horse, &c. &c. &c.
WHereas it hath been represented to his majesty, that several of his subjects, inhabiting the highlands of Scotland, and others, have been seduced by menaces and threatnings of their chiefs and superiors, to take arms, and enter into a most unnatural rebellion; his majesty hath authorised me to assure all such, who shall return to their habitations, on or before the 12th day of November next, and become faithful to his majesty and his government, that they shall be objects of his majesty's clemency; but if, after this his most gracious intention being signified, they shall continue in their rebellion, they will be proceeded against with rigour suitable to the nature of their crime.
Given at the camp at Newcastle upon Tyne, this 30th day of October, 1745.
The route of the rebel army involves Cumberland and Westmorland.
The accounts of the progress of the rebels published by authority, being read with more than ordinary attention, we have copied them from the Gazette, without the intervention of other matters.
