TO

ELSIE, LADY ARROL,

WHOSE KIND ASSISTANCE, HEARTILY GIVEN, I CANNOT TOO GRATEFULLY ACKNOWLEDGE.

HER NOTES,

WRIT DOWN, LIKE MY OWN, FROM HER HUSBAND'S OWN WORDS, HAVE BEEN INVALU

ABLE

CONTRIBUTIONS

TO

MY NARRATIVE,

PREFACE.

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.

September 1913.
