Thread Name: Ye Jacobites By Name -Meaning of a verse
Subject: RE: Ye Jacobites By Name -Meaning of a verse
No, it doesn't give any indication of how the subject is left to his fate.

And leave a man undone to his fate

To be 'undone' is to fall from a respected position or status. This can either be something done by the subject or to the subject.

The line is not very specific. A possible meaning could be - once we have finished our treatment of the subject, leave him to what ever else may happen to him.
