Excerpt from The Universities of Aberdeen: A History

In the preparation of the present work, I have received valuable suggestions and kind encouragement from Principal Sir William D. Geddes, LL.D.; Professor Bain, LL.D.; and the Reverend William L. Davidson, LL.D., late Burnett Lecturer in the University. I am indebted to the Senatus of the University for permission to use the University arms upon the cover; but this, it need scarcely be said, docs not officially commit the Senatus to anything in these pages. I have to thank Professor Salmond, D.D., for unrestricted access to the Banchory pamphlets in the Library of the Free Church College.
