"It was during Gray's term of office that James Gordon, minister of Rothiemay, presented to the Council his
'meikle cairt of paper ' containing a plan of the burgh and surrounding country, the first of its kind that we have any knowledge of. The Council thankfully received the plan and ordained their Dean to present a piece of silver to Gordon along with a new hat, and to buy a silk gown for his bed-fellow. This well-known map of the burgh was afterwards sent to Holland to be engraved."
