Excerpt from Reminiscences of Scottish Life and Character

The demand for a twenty-second edition of a volume of Scottish Reminiscences embracing subjects which are necessarily of a limited and local character - a demand which has taken place during the course of little more than fifteen years since its first publication proves, I think, the correctness of the idea upon which it was first undertaken - Viz. That it should depict a phase of national manners which was fast passing away, and thus, in however humble a department, contribute something to the materials of history, by exhibiting social customs and habits of thought which at a particular era were characteristic of a race. It may perhaps be very fairly said that the Reminiscences came out at a time specially suitable to rescue these features of national life and character from oblivion. They had begun to fade away, and many had, to the present generation, become obsolete.
