The Correspondence of James Boswell with James Bruce and Andrew Gibb, Overseers of the Auchinleck Estate
This collection brings together many of James Boswell's weekly letters to and from James Bruce and Andrew Gibb, the overseers of his Ayrshire estate. Dealing with the day-to-day issues of estate, rents, milking, hedge-cutting and bottle-washing, as well as more general comments on Boswell's bugeoning career, these letters reveal his closely-maintained links with his birthplace, despite his long absences from it.
