Thursday September 15th

Irene McFarlane entertained us with the story of Sir James Wilson (1853-1926), son of Dunning Minister Rev John Wilson and his book, 'Lowland Scotch, as spoken in Lower Strathearn'. We enjoyed comparing some phrases and sayings from this book with 'standard English'. Wilson had been in the Civil service in India (the Punjab) for many years, and in 1901 was awarded Knight Companion of the Star of India (KCSI) for his work there to combat famine and for canal building. He was influenced by the works of William Souter and Irene recited several of his short poems.
