"On this site stood the lodging of Sir Simon Preston of Craigmillar, Provost of the City of Edinburgh 1566-7; in which lodging Mary Queen of Scotland after her surrender to the Confederate Lords at Carberry Hill spent her last night in Edinburgh, 15th June 1567. On the following evening she was conveyed to Holyrood and thereafter to Lochleven Castle as a state prisoner."

Samuel Johnson:
"Sir, never talk of your independency, who could let your Queen remain twenty years in captivity, and then be put to death, without even a pretence of justice, without your ever attempting to rescue her; and such a Queen too! as every man of gallantry of spirit would have sacrificed his life for."

Mr. James Ker (Keeper of the Records in the Signet Library):
"Half our nation was bribed by English money."

Johnson:
"Sir, that is no defence: that makes you worse."
