Fraser's Scottish Annual
A Pen Etching


BY JOHN A. EWAN, TORONTO.

ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON is a shining link in that long unbroken and brilliant chain of literary excellence which the Scottish nation has contributed to the literature of our tongue. What Johnson said of Goldsmith, ''He touched nothing that he did not adorn," could be said with equal truth of Stevenson. He is, of course, known best by his fiction, but the inner circle of his admirers will always look upon "The Inland Voyage," "Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes," "The Amateur Immigrant," "Memories and Portraits," and his child verses, as bringing them into more intimate relationship with the fascinating personality, which inspired them, and whose deeper traits they so delicately touch.
