Reminiscences of the Royal Burgh of Haddington And Old East Lothian Agriculturists by John
THE articles which form
this volume appeared some years ago, at intervals, in the columns of the Haddingtonshire Courier, and latterly in the Haddingtonshire Advertiser.
Many old friends
importuned me, again and again, to collect and publish them in a volume,
assuring me that they would be read with interest.
In compliance more with
their wishes than my own, I venture to place them before the public of
East Lothian, and others, and I hope they may prove interesting.
The articles are very
varied and desultory, and I am sensible that many defects and omissions
will be found in them, but I trust that critics will not be too hard on
me, as this is my first attempt in book-making.
I beg sincerely to thank
very many old friends who encouraged me in my task by readily and kindly
ordering copies of my volume.
