The Memoir gives a fair bit of information about his life in Chatham

Hame Sangs

AUGUST, 1887.

They have been collected and published at the request of many friends in the Dominion and the neighbouring Republic. The themes being homely, they are treated in a homely way; still they may serve to echo the sentiments of Scotchmen who have wandered far "ower the sea," and who yet retain a strong affection for everything pertaining to their native country.
