The following is written along bottom of entire page-

"The Covenanters pursued the Troops to Calder Water about 3 miles
from the field of Action. A person of the name Findlay from Lesmahagow
armed with a pitchfork came up with Captain Graham
at a place called "Capernaum" near Coldwakening and would
probably have killed that officer had not another of the Covenanters
called to Findlay to strike at the Horse and thereby secure both it
and the rider. The blow intended for the Captain was spent upon
his mare and the Captain escaped by mounting with great
agility the horse of his trumpeter who was killed by the Whigs"
