Excerpt from Reminiscences of Scottish Life and Character

Unavailing regrets. The present volume is made up of Reminiscences partly personal and partly communicated. Had I published all those contributed I should have swelled the book to a size much beyond its present dimensions. It would not be easy to explain for all cases the principle of selection. I have very anxiously avoided being tedious, and have sought to submit to others only what seemed to myself to be at once pointed and characteristic. I make no doubt I have omitted many things which might have been safely adopted, but I preferred erring on the side of giving too little to that of giving too mat/9.
