Reminders Of Scotland

A Scene Of Scotland

From The Scot In America:

"From her craigs and plains, her rock-ribbed hills and streamy vales, have warmed men who fill the definition quoted, and to her and to them America owes much of its political greatness as a nation."

"Near the head-waters of the stately Hudson...served to remind the settler of the wimpling burns, the lochs, the banks and braes of his own loved Scotland, his early home, there was early planted and yet exists a community almost unique, for if a list of its family names were called, you might almost imagine yourself listening to a roll-call of the clans of Scotland... ."
