Footnotes

  • The volume of Willison's works is inscribed "This book was brought on board the sloop Robert by James Cochran, Master of the same, on the 30th day of August... When I am dead and in my grave/And all my bones are rotten/Perhaps this book will take my name/When I am quite forgotten. James Cochrane Jnr." It also bears ownership signtures of Elizabeth and Duncan Cochran (Helensburgh), and is embellished by Duncan Cochran with rough ink sketches of the Robert and two other sloops (on the rear paste-down and on pages ii and iii of the second part). The Robert, owned and captained by James Cochran, was a single-decked ship of 60 tons, built at Ipswich in 1745 and surveyed in 1777 at Rotterdam prior to setting sail for London.
