December 1935: Literary Society of Newlands South Church

A short article on page six of The Glasgow Herald, on Tuesday the 3rd of December, 1935, reads:




Mr Granville Squiers, F. R. G. S., delivered in Langside Hall, Glasgow, last night the third of the series

of public lectures arranged by the Literary Society of Newlands South Church. Mr J. Cassells Pinkerton



Mr Squiers’s subject was ‘Secret Hiding-Places,’ and he dealt mainly with refuges of priests and cavaliers

in England during the reign of Elizabeth and Charles I. and Charles II. Mr Squiers mentioned that he had

got a list of 36 Scottish hiding-places, mostly in Aberdeenshire and used mainly by Jacobites. He had not

yet found time to visit them. The lecture was illustrated by a large number of coloured slides.”
