ADAMSON (of Wesley). The Story of a Great Headmaster. Ed. by Felix Meyer. Melbourne, Australia, Robertson and Mullens. 1932. pp. ix,218. Portraits.
Lawrence A. Adamson was born near Douglas in 1860, living for six years at Ballabrooie, on the Peel road. His father, Lawrence William Adamson, was Seneschal, and had charge of the Manorial Rolls. He went to Melbourne in 1886. In 1902 he was appointed headmaster of Wesley College, Melbourne, and returned in 1932 after thirty years' service. This copy has Mr. Adamson's signature and bookplate, and is sent by the publishers to the Governor of the Isle of Man in the hope 'that it will be used in causing a record to be made on Manxland's Roll of Fame,' according to a suggestion made in a Melbourne newspaper by a. Manxman named F. D. Leece.

BORROW (George). Expedition to the Isle of Man: A hitherto unpublished Diary by George Borrow. In Mannin pp. 197-228, 263-267, 301.
Borrow wrote this Diary when on a visit to the Island in 1855. It was, he said, his intention to publish a book on the Isle of Man, which was to be called ' Bayr Jiargey and Glion Doo : the Red Path and the Black Valley Wanderings in Quest of Manx Literature,' but the intention was never fulfilled. The original of the Diary was in the possession of the late Clement Shorter of London. Borrow's step-daughter, Henrietta, also wrote a diary of the same tour. (See p. 301 of ' Mannin.')
The pages of the above Diary were re-imposed and re-paged in pamphlet form and one dozen copies only printed. In Quaritch's catalogue a copy which had belonged to Clement Shorter and later in the possession of Sir Edmund Gosse, was priced at £18.
It is strange that the above Diary runs only from Aug. 20th to Sept. 3rd. In Knapp's Life of Borrow, the Diary is continued from Sept. 4th to October 10th. Clement Shorter seems to have got possession of the MS. of the earlier portion, and Dr. Knapp the MS. of the later portion of the Diary. Life, Writings and Correspondence of George Borrow, derived from official and other authentic sources, by William 1. Knapp, Ph.D., LL.D. London: John Murray. 1899. Vol. i, pp. xix,410 ; vol. ii, pp. ix,406. Portrait and illus. 222x140. [4352]
In vol. ii there is an account of Borrow's visit to the Isle of Man in 1855, covering pp. 125-162. There is a charming sketch of Kirk Braddan by F. G. Kitton, 1855, p. 140, vol. ii.
The Diary which appears in ' Mannin' (commencing on Aug. 20th and finishing on Sept. 3rd) is taken up in Knapp from Sept. 4th to Oct. 10th.

Rev. Robert Brown was father of the poet T. E. Brown. He wrote a volume of poems, published in 1826, entitled ' Poems, principally on sacred subjects,' dedicated to his kinsman the Rev. Hugh Stowell, Rector of Ballaugh. (.See ' Manx Worthies,' pp. 34-35.)

Hugh Stowell Brown was a brother of the Rev. T. E. Brown : his account of his early experiences in Douglas created, when published, a, great deal of angry comment. A second edition was published also in 1887 ; and a third in 1888, the selections from sermons and addresses being deleted.

Hugh Stowell Brown was a popular figure in Liverpool. In the Myrtle Street Baptist Church there is a tablet with the following wording : 'In memory ofHugh Stowell Brown, by the grace of God pastor of this Church for 38 years. Born Aug. 10, 1823, died Feb. 24, 1886. With goodwill doing service, holding forth the word of life. To a wise teacher, a faithful friend, a loving father, this Tablet is erected by his children.'
There is also a fine marble statue at the front of the church, on public ground, erected by the City of Liver- pool.
Hugh Stowell Brown wrote a large number of pamphlets which were very popular during the 38 years of his ministry. He instituted working men's Sunday services, and delivered to large audiences, in outspoken language, weekly lectures on social topics.

The author has contributed an admirable introduction. The mutiny, he says, would not have taken place but for the clash of two strong personalities - Bligh the coni- wander, and Christian the master's mate. The mutiny was the climax to a series of incidents between two men who had once been friends. The author does not apparently know that Bligh had Manx connections : that he was married in St. George's Church in Douglas to a daughter of the chief Customs official who was on duty in Douglas in 1777. There is a deal of unpublished material in Rutter's book. The author does not seem to he aware of the work on 'Nessy Heywood,' written by A. W. Moore, the Speaker of the House of Keys. There is at the end a most useful Bibliography. ' The Mutiny of the Bounty' items are set down in pp. 88-95 of this catalogue.
