Excerpt from Angus or Forfarshire, Vol. 2: The Land and People, Descriptive and Historical

In issuing the Second Volume of "Angus or Forfarshire" to my Subscribers. I have to express my gratitude for the many letters of approval and commendation which I received, and verbal expressions of a like purport made to me, regarding the First Volume of the work. The encouragement thus given has been a stimulus to me to endeavour to make the Second Volume as instructive, and, considering the nature of the work, as attractive as its predecessor, and if it be as well received as the First Volume I will be highly satisfied.

In the Preface to the First Volume it was mentioned that Dr James Geikie, F.R.S., was to supply me with a short article on the Geology of the County, and Mr Edward Moir with another on the Botany of the Shire. In addition to these James Powrie, Esq. of Reswallie, very kindly furnished me with an account of the Fossils found in the County, a subject which he has long studied, and than whom there is none so well qualified to write. The Rev. John Fergusson, Minister of Fearn, was so good as to supply a short notice of the Mosses of the County, with a list of the more interesting Lichens found in Angus. His work, in conjunction with Mr J. Roy of Aberdeen, "Guide to the Botany of the North East of Scotland," shows how well he is qualified for such work. Each of these gentlemen has admirably performed his part, and I am sure their hibours will be highly appreciated by the Subscribers. I cannot sufficiently express my obligations and thanks to them for their valuable labours. Mr Powrie, in his manuscript, added pen and ink outlines of several of the fossils described. I have had these lithographed, and included in the article, and they give non-scientific readers a better idea of the appearance of the fishes than they can have by the letterpress alone.
