He now sends an enquiry about a chair, now in Ireland but thought to be of Scots origin.
The date is clearly 1681 and there are crossed swords between the crown and the hammer (emblems which appear much like this on the gravestones of hammermen of this period).
We would be grateful for any thoughts on the chair which, Stephen says, did not come from Aberdeen, Glasgow or Dundee. Assuming that AC refers to the Deacon at the time, it cannot be from Stirling either as the deacon at that time was John Dick.
