Excerpt from The Genius of Scotland: Or Sketches of Scottish Scenery, Literature and Religion
Having been born and educated in Scotland, and pos sessing a tolerable acquaintance with its History and Literature, the Author of the following Work felt that he'had some facilities for giving to the people of this country a just idea of his native Land. The plan of his work is somewhat new, combining in a larger degree, than he has hitherto seen attempted, descriptions of Sce nery, with Literary and Biographical Sketches, portrai tures of character social and religious, incidents of travel, and reﬂections on matters of local or general interest. Hence he has omitted many things which a mere tourist would not fail to notice, and supplied their place with sketches of more enduring interest. He would particu larly invite attention to the sketches of Knox, Burns, Wilson, Chalmers, Bruce, The Ettrick Shepherd, ' and Sir waiter Scott. His rambles through fair or classic scenes are thus enlivened with useful information. In a word, it has been his endeavor, in an easy natural way, to give his readers an adequate conception of the Scenery, Literature, and Religion of Scotland.
