ELSIE, LADY ARROL,
WHOSE KIND ASSISTANCE, HEARTILY GIVEN, I CANNOT TOO GRATEFULLY ACKNOWLEDGE.
WRIT DOWN, LIKE MY OWN, FROM HER HUSBAND'S OWN WORDS, HAVE BEEN INVALU
This little book, with the exception of its conclusion, was written before Sir William Arrol's death. My chief happiness in completing it would have been to give it to him. It can now only be a memorial. I gladly take this opportunity of tendering my thanks to all who have favoured me with their aid and advice, both before and during the passage
of my work through the press, and especially to Mr J. L. Green, editor of The Rural World,' from whose practical experience I have derived much valuable help.
