Abstract

James Hogg and Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) first became acquainted in 1802. This acquaintance gradually developed into a friendship of almost thirty years. In this letter to Hogg, Scott’s son-in-law, John Gibson Lockhart (1794-1854), writes that Scott had suffered another stroke on a return trip from the Continent. Scott returned to his home, Abbotsford, and Hogg twice tried to visit, but was not allowed to see the author. Scott died on 21 September 1832. The Hogg Collection contains a number of letters, and the correspondents include Hogg’s bow-maker, Peter Muir; editor and abolitionist, Thomas Pringle; and the editor of the Juvenile Forget-Me-Not, Anna Maria Hall.
