PREFACE of "Balgarnie's Salt"
Rev. Robert Balgarnie
Scarborough, November 1877
"THIS work has been written during the summer season, and amid the pressing duties that a large sea-side congregation entails. We are fully aware of its many imperfections; but, as such as it is, we send it forth. It has been, throughout, a labour of love, which we have gladly performed, in memory of one whose long friendship has been to us, both an honour and a privilege. Though the lack of material, especially in connection with his earlier years, has rendered our task more difficult than we anticipated, yet we have done our best. If the record of such a life shall furnish the reader with an example worthy of imitation, - if it shall stimulate him to lofty purpose, - above all, if it shall induce him to regulate his course by Christian principles, and 'to seek those things which are above,' - the highest desires of the writer will be attained."
