And the rest.
And concerning nothing new under the sun, I cannot resist putting up one of one of Robert Bruce's observations about Amos Cruickshank, from 50 Years Among Shorthorns, since we are reading from that book. Just having fun XBAR, no offense meant.
Page 172 FIFTY YEARS AMONG SHORTHORNS.

Well do I remember going through the cattle at Sittyton with a gentleman who had some reputation, and certainly considered himself a judge. His criticisms were free and frequent, and chiefly unfavorable. I shall never forget the patience of Mr. Cruickshank, or his quiet manner. He neither dissented nor attempted any defence of his cattle. Old Cumberland (the principal stock bull) got it badly, and Mr. Cruickshank listened apparently unmoved, but knowing him as I did, I could discern a certain expression of amusement in his face ; and once or twice when he was directly appealed to there was a touch or grain of sarcasm in his replies which the stranger did not appear to observe."

 For the record those 3 bulls are all King Collynie Jr. sons bred at Hultines.
