Begins 'ANDREW HOLM, labourer and fisherman, now or lately residing at Ferrytown in the united parishes of Kirkmichael and Cullicudden, commonly called the parish of Resolis, and shire of Cromarty, THOMAS HOLM, farmer, [and others] [.] THAT ALBEIT, by the laws of this and of every other well governed realm, MOBBING and RIOTING, especially when committed for the purpose of obstructing a Presbytery or other Court in the discharge of their duty; as also OBSTRUCTING a Presbytery or other Court in the discharge of their duty; as also ASSAULT, are crimes of an heinous nature, and severely punishable: [.]'. Ends: 'Take Notice, That you will have to compear before the High Court of Justiciary within the Criminal Court-House of Edinburgh, to answer to the Criminal Libel against you, to which this Notice is attached, on the tenth day of January next, at half-past nine of the clock forenoon. | This Notice served on the [gap] day of December one thousand eight hundred and forty three years, by me, [ends]'. The context of the document is explained by one authority as follows: 'At the time of the Disruption the minister was Donald Sage and most of his flock followed him. The induction of a new minister to Resolis Church led to much unrest and a "riot" which prevented the new minister being inducted his church but instead privately at Cromarty. One of the rioters, Margaret Cameron, was taken to Cromarty jail. The next day a mob broke into the jail and released her. These events eventually led to the arrest and trial of other rioters.'.
