A Dissertation Concerning The Competition for the Crown of Scotland, betwixt Lord Robert Bruce and Lord John Baliol, in the Year 1291
Title continues: "`Wherein is proved, That by the Laws of God and of Nature, by the Civil and Feudal Laws, and particularly by the fundamental Law and Constitution of Scotland, at that Time, and ever since, the Right of Robert Bruce was preferable to that of John Baliol: In Answer to the Author of a late Pamphlet, intitled, The Right of the House of Stewart to the Crown of Scotland considered; to the Reverend Mr. Logan's two Treatises on Government, and to three anonymous Papers in the Scots and British Magazines. With an Appendix, Demonstrating, that the Claim said to have been made to the Crown of Scotland, by William first Earl of Douglas, anno 1371, is without Foundation." Ruddiman was apparently the only Jacobite to argue in detail that the right of succession was in Bruce.
