    Some of the members of the Presbytery of Caithness, during my
    father s residence at Dirlot, may also ben amed. Mr. Patrick Nicolson,
    minister at Thurso, kept a good table and stood high in favour
    of the gentry ; but, in the discharge of his pastoral duties, he was
    certainly remiss and indolent. This inactivity laid him open to a
    severe censure by Rob Donn, the poet. "And what is poor Mr.
    Thomson doing among you 1
    " asked Mr. Nicolson of Rob Donn.
    "Why, parson," replied the poet, "Mr. Thomson is doing what you
    never did he is doing his best." Mr. Nicolson inherited a small
    property from his father, whom he also succeeded as minister of
    Thurso ; but his affairs got deeply involved, and the place was,
    after his death, sold for the behoof of his creditors. (2)

    (2) Mr. Patrick Nicolson, minister of Thurso, died on the 17th January, 1805, in the
    48th year of his age, and IDth of his ministry. Ibid.
