[Sir Walter Scott] The Author of Waveley.Extract from Memoir of Charles Mayne Young._ When a boy Mr. Young was taken by his father to Abbotsford, on a visit to Sir Walter Scott, and he describes minutely what he saw there. He was dressed in a green cut-away coat with brass buttons, drab vest, trousers, and gaiters, with thick shoes on his feet, and a sturdy staff in his hand. He looked like a yeoman of the better class, but his manners bespoke the ease, self-possession, and courtesy of a high-bred gentleman.
