AN EDIFYING SERMON. Mr Johnston, minister of the parish of Lyne and Megget, was a man of a singular character. The two parishes, which are twenty miles distant, are very thinly inhabited, both containing only 160 souls. In winter, Mr Johnston used to assemble the few that could attend, being so widely scattered, in his own kitchen, and set down before them a bottle or two of whisky, saying, Ye ll no be the waur o a wee drap o that, as this is an unco cauld day, an ye hae a gaye bit till gang; joost tak an administer every ane o ye to ye re ain necessity.

Mr Campbell had descended to the breakfast-room one morning, leaving the poet to follow at his. leisure. After waiting some time, he commenced his meal in solitude, and had nearly finished, when his brother entered with a copy of verses in his hand, which he laid on the table as an excuse for the delay, at the same time requesting Mr Campbell s opinion of their merit. The reply was quite characteristic: Your lines are admirable, Tom, my boy; but they want fire; and, suiting the action to the word, the merciless critic committed the paper to the flames. On another occasion, when the brothers were in bed together, the poet was more than usually restless, and, in the ardour of inspiration, inflicted sundry kicks upon his less elevated brother, which the other received with his usual sang froid. In the morning, however, he took the first opportunity of interrogating the poet as to the cause of his perplexed slumbers. I was not asleep, he replied, but was attempting a poem upon grandeur, and could not get the lines to please me at all: with one or two alterations, however, I think it will do now. Indeed! said the elder brother drily: Well, Tom, I don t know what share you claim in this effusion; but I am quite sure /had all the bold strokes of it. THE LOST WIG.

Not illustrated. 1832 Excerpt: .of Glasgow, he occupied the same apartments with an elder brother, who, though no poet himself, was an admirable critic, and possessed a species of dry sarcastic humour, peculiarly his own. Mr Campbell had descended to the breakfast-room one morning, leaving the poet to follow at his. leisure. After waiting some time, he commenced his meal in solitude, and had nearly finished, when his brother entered with a copy of verses in his hand, which he laid on the table as an excuse for the delay, at the same time requesting Mr Campbell s opinion of their merit. The reply was quite characteristic: Your lines are admirable, Tom, my boy; but they want fire; and, suiting the action to the word, the merciless critic committed the paper to the flames. On another occasion, when the brothers were in bed together, the poet was more than usually restless, and, in the ardour of inspiration, inflicted sundry kicks upon his less elevated brother, which the other received with his usual sang froid. In the morning, however, he took the first opportunity of interrogating the poet as to the cause of his perplexed slumbers. I was not asleep, he replied, but was attempting a poem upon grandeur, and could not get the lines to please me at all: with one or two alterations, however, I think it will do now. Indeed! said the elder brother drily: Well, Tom, I don t know what share you claim in this effusion; but I am quite sure /had all the bold strokes of it. THE LOST WIG. While Lord Coalstoun lived in a house in the Advocate s Close, Edinburgh, a strange accident one morning befell him. It was at that time the custom for advocates and judges to dress themselves in gowns, and wigs, and cravats, at their own houses, and walk to. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130691047
