Mrs. Grant of Laggan: Comments on Archibald Smith of Jordanhill, in 1815

Letter XXXVI To Mrs. Gorman, Kilmore, Ireland

Edinburgh, 19th December, 1815

Anne Grant wrote that Archibald Smith: “is one of those people on whose countenance, sentiments, and manners, the stamp of gentleman is visibly impressed; -such a taste for literature, such pleasant conversation, such an easy, disengaged manner, that looks as if he were serenely happy himself, and wished, without saying so, that every one about him should be the same.”
