Excerpt from Verse: Maistly in the Doric In the bonnie wee toon of Kilmarnock, of which he so enthusiastically sings, the genial author of this volume of verse is well known as Pate m'phun. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that his contributions to the local press in both prose and verse have made his pen name familiar as a household word to sons of Auld Killie at home and abroad. For many years he confined his literary labours to humorous sketches on local public events, but latterly he has devoted his leisure to verse, which bears testimony to the intellectual ability and fine sentiment with which he has pursued what he is pleased to call his one and only hobby. The publishers have asked me to write a brief preface to his book in the form of a biographical note. Although I am in no way qualified for this, yet my knowledge of Mr. Cunningham for a long period has been so intimate that it gives me much pleasure to do so.
