The Religious Anecdotes of Scotland

Author: William Adamson
Publisher: Hamilton, Adams and Co
Publish Date: 1886

A fine collection of grand old stories such as could only have been told in the land of Calvinism and robust manhood. We know most of the narratives; indeed they must be numbered with thrice told tales; but it is exceedingly convenient to have them gathered into one volume to which we can refer when we wish to be specially accurate in repeating them. Many of the anecdotes will be new to southerners though familiar enough to our northern brethren. We have selected a specimen for this month's magazine. Dr. Adamson has compiled a valuable and thoroughly lively book and the publishers have issued it in a substantial form. We prophesy that it will have a large circulation.
