Tom Cringle's Log

The author of this very successful work, (originally published in

Blackwood's Magazine,) was a Mr. Mick Scott, born in Edinburgh in

1789, and educated at the High School. Several years of his life were

spent in the West Indies. He ultimately married, returned to his native

country, and there embarked in commercial speculations, in the leisure

between which he wrote the Log. Notwithstanding its popularity in

Europe and America, the author preserved his incognito to the last. He

survived his publisher for some years, and it was not till Mr. Scott's

death that the sons of Mr. Blackwood were aware of his name.
