Letters of John Cockburn of Ormistoun to his Gardner (1727-1733)
Edited with Introduction and Notes by James Colville.

This is an interesting wee book which shows the efforts of gardening in the early part of the 18th century. There are numerous footnotes explaining many of the references in these letters.  I have ocr'd in the Introduction and the first few letters for you to read here.  The complete book can be downloaded in pdf format here!
