Evidence

Saturday, 10 March 1827: "About three o"clock I got to a meeting of the Bannatyne club [...] Thomson is superintending a capital edition of Sir James Melville"s Memoirs. It is brave to see how he wags his Scots tongue and what a difference there is in the force and firmness of his language compared to the mincing English edition in which he has hitherto been alone known."
