ing works more enabled his survivors to clear off oho existing com mercial debt Scott himself died under the delusion no doubt but of which it would have been cruelty to disabuse tlio whole of his debts had been cleared oil In addition however to this the residue of the Ballantyno complications there was a debt of which Scott had pri iately incurred in the endeavor in 1325 to stave off tho coming disaster this sum having been borrowed by him upon the security of his estate A few years after his death it was found that on ac count of this and other accumulations there was a danger that his valuable library with his magnificent collection of armor historical relics and the all as still exhibited in Abbotsford in danger of being seized and dispersed A number of noblemen and gentlemen thereupon collected a sum of money amounting to from to sufficient to pay off the claims which endangered tho library and armor and so restored tlio whole to tho family This far Scotts biographers havo told us but some further has now been made pnblic which gives ns new light upon this transaction The house and shootings of Abbots ford arc at present let to a tenant and a dispute having arisen between the tenant and tho county assessor as to tho amount of rental upon which the house should be assessed the matter came up a few days ago for adjudicafcionjin Edin burgh boforo the Lands Valuation Ap peal Court all who havo visited Abbotsford know there is a charge made of ono shilling a head for visitors this during last year gave to the propri etor the sum of which sum the as sessor wished to include in the assessa ble rent il of tho house Tho court promptly set this claim aside and fixed tho value upon the principles or dinarily observed in such cases These principles and thai value are neitherhero nor there for our present purpose the interesting features of the case being due to a statement made by counselin thecourse of tho hearing This was that the library and armory of Abbotsford do not belong to Scotts lineal representatives nor have done so since shortly after his death The library and armory bought back were not as has been supposed vested in Scotts representatives but were placed by tbo subscribers under a trust the trustees beingthe Dean and Council of the Faculty ofAdvocates Edinburgh An advocate is tho equivalent of what in England is called a barrister and the Dean and Council of the Faculty are al ways men who havo distinguished them selves at the Scottish Bar and out of whose number tho judges for the Su preme Courts are chosen The Faculty may therefore be regarded as one of tho highest and most select public bodies in body by the way of which Scott himself was a member The trust therefore that was thus formed for tho reception and oversight of library and relics is oneIn which the public have every confidence When the trust was formed it wasmade a condition was accepted by the heirsof entail of the latter should provide accommodations for the articles and that these should be open under regulations to the inspection of the public and em bodied in duly executed deeds with the result that the Dean and Council of tho Faculty oj Advocates have ever since been virtual custodi ans and possessors of the Ab botsford libraryand curiosities Fears have been expressed that the time might come when that magnificent col lection should be broken up and dis persed and it has even been urged in the public prints from time to time that the nation should to guard against this pucrhaso Abbotsford House and its con tents Any fear of such a danger may now be set aside for the public body to whom the collection is now found to be long is itself an historical i institution and the relics in its keeping are as safe as if
