For those wishing to know: "An old Scottish lady, four generations ago,
used to say, 'It is a great comfort to think that, at the Day of Judgment,
we shall know the whole truth about the Gowrie Conspiracy at last.'"
Lang's painstaking investigation of what happened on 5th August 1600 when
King James VI went to to Gowrie House, and why at the end of the day
both Gowrie brothers lay dead.
All the best,
England, it should be snowing but it's just cold, wet and drizzling
