Reasons why the image for this memorial was requested

Hi, Currently a history researcher in the US, I am conducting a small inquiry on a said Walter Minto, a Scottish man of letters who eventually became a professor of mathematics at Princeton University (New Jersey, USA) in the late 18th century. While doing some fieldwork in the libraries around the US, I came across a certificate in Latin delivered in 1776 on behalf of this Walter Minto by « Jacobus Robertson S.S.I.D. Linguarum Orientalium Professor Almce Academia Edimburgenae a Secretis et Bibliothecarius ». I guess having the picture of the grave monument of this Jacob Robertson would help me a good deal at this point. Many thanks in advance for your understanding and help! With my very best wishes, Mathieu
