Baillie, Robert (15991662)

Baillie, Robert, a Scotch Presbyterian divine, born in Glasgow; resisted Laud's attempt to thrust Episcopacy on the Scotch nation, and became a zealous advocate of the national cause, which he was delegated to represent twice over in London; he was a royalist all the same, and was made principal of Glasgow University; “His Letters and Journals” were published by the Bannatyne Club, and are commended by Carlyle as “veracious,” forming, as they do, the subject of one of his critical essays (15991662).
