Description

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.show more
