Excerpt from Literary and Historical Essays
Henry Grey Graham, author of the essays in this volume, youngest of the eleven children of the Rev. Robert Balfour Graham, D.D., minister of the parish of North Berwick, was born in the manse there on October 3, 1842. He was a student of literature even from boyhood. All his pocket-money was spent on books. On the death of his father, in 1855, Mrs. Graham took him and her youngest daughter to live in Edinburgh. After about two years at school there, supplementing similar tuition at North Berwick, he entered the University, where his career was uneventful. Shy and retiring, he did not contend for honours, and indeed, it is said, did not take class work very seriously. Still, he held a good place, especially in Divinity, and at the meetings of debating societies showed great cleverness, often speaking with keen wit and cutting sarcasm. Licensed by the Presbytery of Haddington in 1865, he became assistant to the Rev. George Allison, at Bonhill, Dumbartonshire. Promotion came without much delay.
