    Nicolas Dupin and Denis Manes floated a joint stock company in 1694 with a capital of £5,000, The Society of the White-Writing and Printing Paper Manufactory of Scotland. The Committee members included George Mossman stationer. They had a warehouse at Heriot's Bridge in the Grassmarket. They asked for a monopoly of paper-making in Scotland in 1694, but this was refused on the grounds that there were already other paper mills. They ran into financial trouble perhaps exacerbated by the conduct of their Clerk, Robert Henderson who was imprisoned in the Tolbooth at Edinburgh 'for alledged imbazelling the effects belonging to the said manufactory'. He was released in May 1703 because the tacksmen brought no charge against him. The Company made a tack of the two paper-mills 17 September 1703 to George Kerr, merchant and George Livingstoune wright both of Edinburgh on condition that they retained the existing apprentices and workmen. Both mills were still working as papermills in 1714, and Yester was offered for let in working order in 1774. Waterston mentions a papermark COMPANY surmounted by a crowned thistle in two bonds of 1697, and illustrates photographs of a mark BRED / DUPIN in a deed of 1700, and BRAID in an ornamental cartouche in a deed of 17 March 1703 and YESTER in a similar cartouche in a deed of 20 June 1705.

By dint of application, he had improved an excellent understanding, and acquired a taste and science in his profession which few predecessors had displayed; disdaining to be fettered by the common rules of art, he ranged into a wide field of luxuriant fancy, and combined in types such symmetry and elegance as might vie with the powers of the painter's pencil' Timperley 750.
