GLASGOW - "As long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule." This quote is from the Declaration of Arbroath, a 14th-century letter by Scottish nobles to the pope in Rome, petitioning his support for an independent Scottish kingdom. It can be found, among other places, at the National Museum of Scotland, in Edinburgh.
