To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:

Next day the whole army entered Manchester, amid the acclamations of the inhabitants, who illuminated their houses, and lighted up bonfires in the evening, to express their joy. The same evening one Dickson, a sergeant, enlisted by the Chevalier John- stone, from the prisoners taken at Preston, presented 180 recruits whom he had raised in the course of the day in Manchester. This young Scotchman, whom the Chevalier represents to have been " as brave and in- trepid as a lion," disappointed at hi...s own ill success in raising recruits at Preston, had requested permission from Johnstone, in whose company he was, to proceed to Manchester — a day's march before the army — to make sure of some recruits before it should arrive there.
The Chevalier reproved him sharply for entertaining so wild and extravagant a project, which would expose him to the danger of being taken and hanged, and ordered him back to his company; but Dickson, reckless of consequences, quitted Preston on the evening of the twenty-eighth, with his mistress and a drummer, and travelling all night, entered Manchester next morning, and immediately began to beat up for recruits for " The Yellow Haired Laddie." Conceiving that the Highland army was at hand, the populace at first did not interrupt him; but when they ascertained that the army would not arrive till the evening, they surrounded him in a tumultu- ous manner, with the intention of taking him prisoner, dead or alive.
