William Cameron of “The Paraphrases”

The Rev W T Cairns, DD, Edinburgh

William T Cairns uses his recent acquisition of a copy (1754) of Offices of Devotion by an English Puritan Divine, James Foster, to describe the volume, rather more than half the pages of which are in manuscript, apparently written by William Cameron and containing carefully wrought prayers of which he was the author.  He goes on to give details of Cameron’s life as a student of James Beattie in Aberdeen, as the most active member of the Committee on Paraphrases, and as Minister of Kirknewton.

Volume 10 1937-38, p60
