Excerpt from Glasgow Men and Women, Their Children and Some Strangers Within Their Gates: A Selection From the Sketches of Twym
It would not have occurred to me to drag these' sketches from the obscurity of the past, were it not that an undoubted authority informed me, in a moment of confidence, that a book of this kind would be an unquestioned benefit to the men and women of Glasgow and to the strangers within their gates. He, in short, commanded their re-publication. And so the original proofs were looked out and selected. They were also carefully revised, a line being strengthened or added here, a line being lessened or eliminated there, and new block's were made on a slightly reduced scale for the purposes of this volume.
