Om Letters of Two Centuries
Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. When the Scottish Highlander was first projected I agreed to contribute a series of articles under the title of Letters Of Two Centuries. These appeared, with one interval, regularly for four years, beginning in July, 1885, and they are now reprinted in this form.
Giving a letter for each year has many advantages, and that plan has been adhered to; but not having my collections of letters inventoried when the series commenced, I found as I went on that my letters for some years were uninteresting, though obliged to give them; and for some twenty years of the entire series I had to go outside my own collection.
The issue in its progress has brought me into communication with many new friends, notably in New England, in consequence of the letter of 1739.
The index, which is full and well executed by Mr. William Simpson, of the Scottish Highlander, will, it is hoped, be found generally useful.
< br>The printing, etc., is in every respect satisfactory; but this was to be expected from the enterprising publishers.
