Excerpt from Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat: His Life and Times

Lives that Voltaire desired to be sent to him. They are all more or less untrustworthy, and I have practically ignored them.

I have to acknowledge my indebtedness to Mr. William Burns and Mr. William Mackay, both of Inverness, for useful hints relating to Lovat matters. Mr. Burns has written a series of stimulating letters on Simon Fraser, and Mr. Mackay has published, in the Transactions of the Gaelic Society of Inverness, a quantity of highly interesting Lovat correspondence. The index has been kindly pre pared by Mr. J. Parker Anderson, late of the British Museum, to whom my thanks are due for the admirable manner in which the work has been performed.

I have thought it desirable to deal in greater detail with the earlier and little-known part of Simon Fraser's life than with the later and well-known portion. A full knowledge of his younger days is necessary for an ade quate comprehension of the events of his old age, with which the general reader is more conversant.
