Hay was a member of the Crochallan Fencibles, a convivial club that met at the Anchor Close, a public house off Edinburgh's Royal Mile. Robert Burns was also a member: in 1797 the poet send Hay a copy of ''On the Death of the late Lord President'', with the comment: ''These kind of subjects are much hackneyed; and besides, the wailings of the rhyming tribe over the ashes of the Great, are damnably suspicious and out of all character for sincerity. These ideas damp'd my Muse's fire; however I have done the best I could'.
Raeburn's oil is held by the National Gallery of Scotland (NG 522) but on loan. Whitman: 403. Frankau: 78.
