1919 THE MALTESE CROSS POSTMARK

Tch! tch! Gentlemen (the authors) please... "Scotch" is a drink,
the term we use for those handsome folk, in the North of the island, is "Scot" or Scots" !

Angus is considering those whom collect inverted Wmks as "foolish"
and, complaining of rising prices.
What's new ?

"Scotch" was normal usage. The shift to a preference for "Scottish" seems to have gradually taken place during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, so the authors' usage isn't too odd.

MAIL IN THE MIDDLE AGES

Pay : 3d per diem. (Three pence per day)
4/8d (Four shillings and 8 pence) Annual (For boots)

Letters would be in Latin.

In the middle ages it was normal to read aloud (even when reading on your own). This meant that prose was punctuated according to where you could take breath while maintaining the sense of what was being said.

Edward ll : 1284 to 1327
Edward lll : 1327 to 1377

Note: 2013 Letter found from Robert the Bruce, to Edward ll (In Cursus)

Her Majesty is, and has been, a rare individual,
It kinda ends there, the family, well...

That stuff has me cringing,
but, it is part of that respectful irreverence the English
in my time, were famous for.
Never seemed "nasty"

When I left, it all went downhill, along with your press.
