One more of these last letters of farewell, but dated earlier in the day, has lately been discovered, addressed to the Earl's second son John, and this too is interesting through its allusion to the Countess Anna:
June 30, 1685.
"We parted suddenly, but I hope shall meet happily in heaven. I pray God bless you, and if you seek Him, He will be found of you. My wife will say all to you; pray love and respect her. I am,
"Your loving father, Argyll."
It was for favour to this son, John Campbell, that, according to Fountainhall, Argyll interceded earnestly during his rest at the Laigh Council-house, pleading that he had only accompanied him "without arms, not being able [p. 132] to fight through a debility in his hands." He "pled much at the same time for all his children, and for the people" who had been with him, his clansmen and as having been for the most part constrained to follow hit in his late rebellion.
Of the Earl's four sons the second, John Campbell of Mamore, was forfeited for taking part in his father's expedition, but had his forfeiture rescinded at the Revolution in 1689, and represented Argyll in the Scottish Parliament in 1700 and Dunbarton in the first Parliament of the United Kingdom
