Walter Scott to John Murray, 23 March 1818: 'I laid Kirkton aside when half finished, from a desire to get the original edition of the "Lives of Cameron," &c., by Patrick Walker, which I had not seen since a boy, and now I have got it, and find, as I suspected, that some curious morceaux have been cut out by subsequent editors.'
