Excerpt from The Life of Hugh Heugh, D.D

These memorials of Dr Heugh succeed his death at a greater distance than his friends could have desired. They have been put together in the course of the last two years, during such intervals of time as could with propriety be taken from pastoral duties, the full discharge of which, demands a minister's undivided time and energy. The Compiler, after having surveyed the mass of materials originally at his disposal, and having linked together a considerable portion of the narrative, discovered, at different times, three copious diaries, extending, with a few blank spaces, over thirty-six years of public life. The first glances at these documents produced the impression, which was afterwards deepened into strong conviction, that the Memoir, in its most important qualities, would suffer serious injustice, if such records of the inner life should be thrown aside. Acting under this conviction, and with such help as he could command, he set himself to thread the labyrinths of a difficult and peculiar short-hand writing, with the view of bringing forth important instructions from materials otherwise inaccessible. The results are submitted to the judgment of the reader. They are variously interwoven with the larger portion of the volume.

The Compiler has made himself acquainted with every fragment of Dr Hough's writing - so far as he knows of its existence - bearing, even in a remote degree, upon his undertaking.
