The Scot in British North America
Vol II - Preface

The prolonged delay in the issue of the second installment of this work has not been wholly the fault of the publishers or of the writer. It was originally intended to follow up the local bearings of the subject through the entire Province of Ontario. Unfortunately the necessary information has been so long in coming to hand that no course was open to us but to fall back upon the political aspect of the Scot. In dealing with this, it is hoped that a fair measure of justice has been meted out to distinguished Scots of both parties. The purpose of the book is distinctly non-partisan; and, although pronounced opinions have been expressed, it is hoped that they have not been put obtrusively forward. To be measurably neutral, without making the work colourless, has been the aim throughout.

Many names, which might have found a place here, have been omitted, partly from lack of details concerning them, but mainly because they will come in appropriately hereafter. In conclusion, we may state that those who can afford information concerning Scottish settlements, throughout Ontario, north, east and west, will confer a great favour by communicating it at an early date, so that the next volume may be as complete as possible, and reach the subscribers’ hands within a reasonable time.

May 16th, 1881.
