Excerpt from The Ruthven Family Papers: The Ruthven Version of the Conspiracy and Assassination at Gowrie House Perth, 5th August 1600

Historical events affecting Scottish history, or indeed any history, and occurring SO far back as 1600, or fully three centuries ago, are rarely called in question even by students of history, nor is it desirable to encourage what would challenge the accuracy and integrity Of the generally accepted historical record, unless the material so produced were beyond doubt and unchallengeable. In that notable and momentous event, the so-called Gowrie Conspiracy, Of which we have now unquestionable proof, there has always been mystery surrounding it, evidently founded on the refusal Of the Scottish Clergy and Magistrates Of Perth, and the majority of the Scottish people Of that period, to recognise it as a conspiracy Of the Ruthvens, and the Clergy's refusal to pray for the King's deliverance; believ ing, as many of them did, that the King was himself the author Of the plot. It is a notorious fact that it is the King's version Of the plot, and no other version, that has been before the public these three hundred years, notwithstanding there are historians who have pointed out that no narrative by the Ruthven family has ever been forthcoming.
