EDINBURGH: rrinted by ANDREW SHORTREDE, Thistle Lane,


In order to account for the discrepant orthography of the pseudo-claimant's name, as it appears in the succeeding pages, I may mention, that in every part of the volume, except the Crown productions, I have spelt it Humphrys, and not Humphreys, at the express request of Mr Lockhart, agent for Mr Humphrys. Although the difference is immaterial, yet, for the sake of typographical accuracy, as well as from courtesy to Mr Lockhart, I think it right to notice it thus specially.
