Excerpt from The History of the Kirk of Scotland: From the Year 1558 to August 1637
Four years aﬂzer Row's death, a fair transcript of the revised and enlarged History was made by his second son, John Row, minister of Aberdeen. This ms. Written in 1650, is by far the most accurate copy of the work that is known; and it has been adopted as the basis of the present edition. A copy of it appears to have been made by his brother, William Row, minister of Ceres, as a still later transcript seems to indicate, from its containing a few addi tional passages chieﬂy in the Coronis, which may be attributed to him. In the Maitland Club edition of this work, however, the whole of the Coronis, and all the various passages incorporated into the History itself, are ascribed to William Row, but evidently upon no suﬂicient authority. The Editor was not aware of the existence of John Row's ms. Of 1650, in which the entire work is distinct ly given in his Father's name, (the few casual interpolations by the younger John Row, while transcribing the ms., not being of such importance as to require special distinction while the Coronis itself bears internal evidence of being an integral part of the original work, and written by the author of the History.
