A very considerable section, however, especially in the east and northeast of Scotlandand more particularly among the wealthy and aristocratic classes, remained attached to Episcopalian principles; and though those of the clergy who refused to conform to the Establishment were treated with considerable harshness, no attempt was made to compel the laity to attend Presbyterian worship, or submit to the rigid Presbyterian discipline.

Texts were provided for some festivals and seasons of the liturgical calendar. The orders of worship include separate ones for the evening service—not a common feature in most worship books.

The Revolution ofand the flight of the Catholic king, opened the way to the abolition of the Prelatical government which was odious to the majority of Scotsmen; and one of the first acts of the Parliament assembled in the first year of the reign of William III July, was to repeal all previous acts in favour of Episcopacy.
