Excerpt from Major-General Arthur St. Clair: A Brief Sketch

Many poets sang of their illustrious deeds and the sweetest singer of them all tells in "The Song of Harold" how the Orcades, were once held under the princely sway of the St. Clairs:

"Then from his seat, with lofty air,
Rose Harold, bard of brave St. Clair;
St. Clair, who, feasting with Lord Home,
Had with that lord to battle come.
Harold was born where restless seas
Howl round the storm-swept Orcades;
Where once St. Clair held princely sway
O'er isle and islet, strait and bay;
Still nods their palace to its fall,
Thy pride and sorrow, fair Kirkwall."

By the reverses of fortune on the part of their immediate forbears, his parents had lost their extensive ancestral possessions and at the time of his birth were without great influence at the court of St. James or in Scotland. The remnant of the original estate once held by William St. Clair was moreover entailed by the laws of primogeniture, so that Arthur, the youngest son, could not hope to inherit a part of the encumbered possessions. His education therefore was to fit him for a profession and in early manhood he entered the University of Edinburg, intending later to take up the study of medicine. On the death of William St. Clair, the young student removed to London, that he might have the benefit of a hospital practice in the worlds greatest metropolis. There he entered the office of Dr. William Hunter, then regarded as one of the first physicians of the city.
