1905. This volume contains two sketches. The first is a delightful character portrait of Fleeming Jenkin and the second is a record of the notable Stevenson family who were known engineers and builders of lighthouses.
BUT it is now time to see Jenkin at his life's work. I have before me certain imperfect series of letters written, as he says, 'at hazard, for one does not know at the time what is important and what is not': the earlier addressed to Miss Austin, after the betrothal; the later to Mrs. Jenkin the young wife.
