ABSTRACT
The article examines the complexity of negotiating marriage within a patriarchal society during the eighteenth century Scotland, based on archived correspondence of Anna Potts and Sir Archibald Grant of Monymusk. The author explores the negotiation of issues of love, obedience, and the use of economic resources within Grant's letters and Scottish history in general. Comments are given suggesting that the marital disputes that appear in their correspondence may reflect that they resented the distance between them or writing may have allowed them to express emotions that they would not have done in person.
