Scope and content

File is an engraving from book West Port Murders. Inscription reads: A laconic narrative of the Life & Death of James Wilson known by the name of Daft Jamie. In which are interspersed, several anecdotes relative to him and his old friend Boby Awl, an idiot who strolled about Edinburgh for many years. He's to be pitied, that's such a silly elf, who cannot speak nor wrestle for himself. Jamie was such a simpleton, he'd not fight with a boy; nor did he ever curse or swear, at those who'd him annoy. Published by W. Smith, Bristo Port, Edina. Price Thrip Pence. 1829. Reprinted (1881) by A. & G. Brown, 15 Bristo Place and the Mound, Edinburgh.
