".... The income Inverneil accrued from his Argyllshire Estates during the 1780s, on average around £ 1550 yearly, (today, £ 97,417.50) was but a fraction (just over a tenth after adjustments for arrears) of the moneys he accumulated annually from his stocks and shares in the East India Company, the Scottish Banks and Consolidated Government Funds, and as financier to his regimental and diplomatic associates. Conversely, the sums initially expended (£ 7977; or £ 501,354 today) in acquiring the estates of Inverneil and Danna in Mid Argyll, were but a tenth of his total expenditure in 1776, over £ 9785 (today, £ 614,987.25) being laid out in stock and £ 55, 560 (£501,354 in today's money) in interest-bearing notes."
