Excerpt from Craig Phadric: Visions of Sensibility, With Legendary Tales, and Occasional Pieces
Few observations, it is presumed, are necessary by way of Preface to the following Poems. If any preliminary remark be requisite, it should be such as might induce the Reader to view with a favourable eye an attempt to perform a self-imposed task, by no means easy of execution - to delineate with the hand of a Poet, and the pen of a Historian, an extensive and highly romantic district, comprehending the scenes of many remarkable events hitherto but indistinctly pointed out, or inaccurately narrated; and now exhibiting a very different aspect from what it bore in former times; a district which, perhaps more than any other in the kingdom, presents a train of pleasing and splendid examples of industry in a class of people formerly not remarkable for possessing that quality, and of well directed attention in the Proprietors, whose exertions have happily been at length called forth with success in the improvement of their native land. To these are to be added the beneficial results arising from the beneficence of Government, which by the great works it has completed, and is still completing, throughout the Highlands of Scotland, has not a little fostered the interests of the empire at large.
