By William Meredith Morris

He is an ingenious man, and was originally a tailor. He makes on an original model. The only instrument of his make which I have seen was not finely made, but it was strongly built, and had a rough sort of character. It was covered with a reddish amber oil varnish of his own make. The tone was large, but rather shrill. He was born about forty-eight years ago, and is a native of Perth, Scotland. He has lost one limb, but he wears another of his own manufacture.
