For those of you interested in the Kilmarnock riots, I presume you have read
the newspaper articles written at the time. The British Newspaper Archives
website index at www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk
shows that articles were
published on Monday 21 August, 1826, in the Glasgow Herald (From the Ayr
Advertiser) and in the Caledonian Mercury, regarding the 'scarcity of meal'
rioting in Kilmarnock.
