Major James Fraser was an ardent Jacobite (although in this portrait he is wearing the black cockade of the House of Hanover on his bonnet), who wrote about his adventures. His manuscript was edited by Alexander Fergusson and published by D. Donald in 1889, 'Major Fraser's Manuscript, His Adventures in Scotland and England, his Mission in France in Search of his Chief, his Services in the Rebellion and His Quarrels with Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat 1696–1737'.
