    Excerpt from The Burns Calendar: A Manual of Burnsiana; Relating Events in the Poet's History, Names Associated With His Life and Writings, a Concise Bibliography, and a Record of Burns Relics

    Our original intention was to publish the burns calendar without any prefatory remarks for one reason, the title page so distinctly indicates its purpose, that no introduction seemed to be needed and again, our vocation in compiling it was to produce - rather than describe, to collect the materials as best we could in the haze of a receding century, combine these in a graceful garniture, bringing nothing of our own but the hand that gathered them; this was all we sought to accomplish, and our labour of love will fulfil its mission if this contribution to Burns Literature find acceptance as a work of reference, and meet with a friendly welcome in that wider circle of kindred Spirits who manifest a national interest in whatever concerns the name and fame of Scotland's greatest Poet. Should our effort avail for this end, it will sufficiently justify its appearance, if not, it will speedily disappear, and this outburst of fervour will be classed among the buried hopes of a pardonable enthusiasm. Some of our readers will understand how difficult it is to verify many of the dates recorded, knowing how greatly received authorities differ; but, in order to ensure accuracy in names, dates, and other particulars, every care has been taken to consult various sources of information in all doubtful or disputed cases. Having further gleanings to chronicle, which could not be transferred to their proper place in the calendar for want of sufficient data, these must either be passed over in silence, or a. Niche found for them out of the cycle, and, as the Record would be unsatisfactory without the mention of certain familiar names, this seems the only eligible place to connect them in a brief review, so as not to interfere with the plan of classification. With this additional chapter to the register, there is still the confession to make of offering an unfinished Memorial, for, after all our endeavours for comprehension, many an enquiry has been fruitless homes are broken up and pass into oblivion as soon as the lights are out, having no eventful annals to preserve the simple story of their lives households migrate and leave no memento in the local history others bequeath uncertain traditions which require cautious sifting.
