Published by Philip H. Nicklin, and Co. Baltimore, Farrand,
STRAND, Oct. 26, 1785. Pro Since this Work was printed off, the Publisher having been informed that the Author, some years ago, had promised the laird of Raasay to correct, in a future edition, a passage concerning him, p. 97, thinks it a justice due to that gentleman to insert here the advertisement relative to this matter, which was published, by Dr. Johnson's desire, in the Edinburgh newspapers in the year 1775, and which has been lately reprinted in Mr. Boswell’s Tour to the Hebrides.
“The Author of the Journey to the Western Islands “having related that the Macleods of Raasay acknow“ledge the chieftainship, or superiority, of the Macleods “ of Sky, finds that he has been misinformed or mistaken. “He means in a future edition to correct his errour, “ and wishes to be told of more, if more have been dis
“ covered.” *
