PREFACE.

When arranging the family papers at Duffus House, Gordonston, and Lesmurdie Cottage, the residences respectively of my brother, Sir Archibald Dunbar, my cousin, Sir Alexander Gordon Cumming, and my kinsman, Captain James Stewart, I occasionally found documents which appeared to me to throw considerable light on old social life, or to be otherwise interesting, and which I therefore sent to the local

press.

Wishing to give them a morë' extensive circulation, I now venture to offer them, systematically arranged, to the public.

E. DUNBAR DUNBAR.

SEA PARK, July 1865.
