Notes A near-contemporary acknowledgment of Johnstone’s authorship can be found in Mrs Hughes of Uffington’s Letters and Recollections of Sir Walter Scott, ed. Horace G. Hutchinson: ‘A Mrs. Johnson is the author of the Saxon and the Gael (of which Sir W. and Hogg spoke well)’ (London: Thomas Nelson & Sons, n.d.), p. 328. For Hogg himself referring to the work, but without mentioning an author, see Peter Garside ‘Reviewing Scott: A Hogg Notice of Guy Mannering in the Caledonian Mercury’, Studies in Hogg and His World, 19 (2008), 66–80. One rumour in Edinburgh, reported by J. G. Lockhart to a friend in a letter of 28 February 1815, claimed that the author was John Pinkerton, ‘on account of his notorious scurrility and hatred of Edinburgh’: The Life and Letters of John Gibson Lockhart, ed. Andrew Lang, 2 vols. (London, 1897), I, 74.
