Excerpt from Curiosities of a Scots Charta Chest, 1600-1800: With the Travels and Memoranda of Sir Alexander Dick, Baronet of Prestonfield, Midlothian
This volume of letters and Memoranda has been compiled apart from all idea of bookmaking, and solely with the view of bring ing the reader directly into contact with the writers, who require but little introduction, the greater number being familiar, not only to historians, but to all those who interest themselves in Scottish family history.
To have done justice to the material contained in the mass of correspondence collected between 1600 and 1800 would have been a work of many volumes, and a labour which the researches of others render unnecessary.
The earlier letters point to the scant courtesy shewn by the Government to those who gave their substance for the benefit of their country and Sir William Dick may be considered fortunate in not losing his head as well as his money.
