Alexander Henderson Churchman and Statesman free pdf Excerpt from Alexander Henderson Churchman and Statesman Professor Masson placed on record his conviction that Alexander Henderson was 'all in all one of the ablest and best men of his age in Britain, and the greatest, the wisest and most liberal of the Scottish Presbyterians. They had all to consult him: in every strait and conflict he had to be appealed to. Although the Scottish Presbyterian rule was that no churchman should have authority in State affairs, it had to be practically waived in his case: he was a Cabinet Minister without office.' But he adds, 'He has never received justice in general British history.' Henderson's title to live in history is the National Covenant of 1638, a conspicuous landmark in the history of Liberty. The discovery a few years ago by the late Mr. Fitzroy Bell, advocate, and Dr. Hay Fleming of a portion of Wariston's Diary, now admirably edited for the Scottish History Society by Sir George M. Paul, LL.D., Deputy Keeper of the Signet, is a fortunate one. It embraces the years 1637-8, and adds much to our knowledge of those times. But it has brought us loss as well as gain. It has torn out of the history of Scotland one of its most picturesque pages. Every Scotsman must regret that the story of the signing of the National Covenant by 'weeping multitudes' in Greyfriars churchyard - a story celebrated in Scottish art and letters - turns out to be fiction not fact.
