Perthshire Election

At a Perthshire election Sir John Camphell solicited a Mr MacGreger to use his influence with his son, to give
his vote for Sir George Mnrray. The old man said it would be useless, as his son was already fully pledged to the opposite party.

Sir John was greatly displeased when he heard this, and testily replied:

“Then your son is not a true MacGregor; there must be some bad blood in him.“

To which the descendant of Rob Roy quietly replied:

“I wouldn't doubt that, Sir John, for his mother was a Campbell!“
