The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Glasgow to Relson: A Practical Suggestion


WHEN Sir John Carr was in Glasgow, about the year 1807, he was asked by the magistrates to give his advice concerning the inscription to be placed on the Nelson monument, then just completed. Sir John recommended as a brief and appropriate epigraph,— "Glasgow to Nelson."

"Just so," said one of the Glasgow bailies; "and as the toon o’ Nelson’s (Neilston?) close at hand, might we no juist say, ‘Glasgow to Nelson, sax miles’? and so it might serve for a monument and a milestone too."
