Huntly Gordon, the youngest son of the minister's wife, was born in a Perthshire manse some eighty years ago. Now in his retirement, he looks back to his own upbringing and a way of life long-past, yet still within the stretch of memory. Olga, his mother, is at the centre of the story and it is around her that this all too brief history of a Scottish middle-class family revolves. Mr Gordon writes: 'Since 1914, when I was a lazy sixteen, life has almost run me off my feet. Two World Wars, hard times between them, a lot of hard work after them and at last time to dream again, to savour life before it closes. Time also to dig into the past, to study old letters my parents left. What wouldn't I give for an hour's talk with the Lord-Advocate I never saw; or the Waterloo veteran; or further back, the Sutherland farmer ?' Originally written so that his children and grandchildren might know something of their common past. S8.
