  • Notes 
    • He was known as 'Adie o' Aberlosk'. He became James Hogg's partner in the lease of the Locherben farm, Dumfrieshire in 1807.

      from "Hislop's Book of Scottish anecdote"...
      The following letter appeared in an early number of Blackwood's Magazine ... It is a pity that a fuller account of the matter has not been given, as it was said that it led to the dismissal from office of the party complained of. "The king" was George III., and the writer died in 1850, at the age of 84 ... There was some little delay in the delivery of the letter, but it eventually reached the "royal hand"?

      Dear Sir,? I went thirty miles yesterday on foot to pay your taxes, and after all the bodies would not take them, saying that I was too late, and that now they must be recovered by regular course of law. I thought if you was like me, money would never come wrong to you, although it were a few days too late ; so I enclose you twenty-seven pounds in notes, and half a guinea, which is the amount of what they charge me for the last half year; and fourpence halfpenny over. You must send me a receipt when the coach comes back, else they will not believe that I have paid you. Direct to the care of Mr Andrew Wilson, butcher, in Hawick.? I remain, Dear Sir, your very humble servant,

      "Adam Brydon.
      "P. S.? This way of taxing the farmers will never do; you will see the upshot.
      "To His Majesty
      George Rex, London."
