He was a strong Tory ; took keen inter est in the wild stories of border raids in the savage times. He was of weak physique ; unfortu nately, like Byron, he was lame. He became a Scawtch 'six-and eightpence' or advocate. He was a linguist of some considerable ability. Our author was seriously in volved in financial difficulties. He worked hard to reduce his debts.
