For the White Rose of Arno

Excerpt from For the White Rose of Arno In dubbing this book "For the White Rose of Arno" I was not aware that the phrase was at all questionable, until a student of the Jacobite movement pinked it with a, "Why of Arno? The Pretenders had nothing to do with the Arno. Why not of Tiber?" In reply I could only say that the phrase was not mine but Pengraig's own, and that it was used also in a pamphlet published immediately after his death for the purpose of vilifying his name and memory. It is certain, therefore, that "the White Rose of Arno" was well understood to express symbolically the Pretender and his cause at the time when both were living factors to be reckoned with. Moreover, Llewellin, in his biography of Morgan, continues the use of the term, and the latest writer upon the point, Mr. J. Arthur Price, follows in his wake. Thus this book could hardly come out under any other title than the one which meant so much to the chief actors in it.
