Rambles Round Glasgow
by Hugh Macdonald


TO
JAMES HEDDERWICK, ESQ.,
Editor of the "Glasgow Citizen."

MY DEAR SIR,

The thread of the gossamer, "a trifle light as air," shows the way of the wind; the evanescent foam-bell upon the surface of the stream indicates the tendency of the current; and the dedication of my little book may serve to manifest the drift of my feelings towards one whom I regard as a friend and benefactor. Permit me therefore to inscribe it to you, with every sentiment of respect and gratitude.

Yours faithfully,

HUGH MACDONALD
July,
1854
