NARRATIVE ON PRINT - John Craik cannot, even on the most liberal construction of the term, be called a poet, but he was a curious character, some of whose rhymes had the Cliffs and Seaton Den as the scene of their inspiration. Craik published two small books of rhymes : (1) Songs and Poems, Dundee. (2) Loyal Songs and Poems, chiefly composed in Ireland. From the latter of these books, it is evident that Craik was a soldier. The book is dedicated to Major Duff of Fetteresso, and, beyond the title, it contains no allusion to the locality of Arbroath, nor to its author's personal history, beyond his soldiering in Ireland. Neither does the Dundee book show to where he belonged. It consists of acrostics and poems on places and persons, and the compositions are all most thorough doggerel. About Seaton he says : 'Near by Arbroath the Seaton lies, So beauteous and fair ; I know no place for herbs and fruits, with Seaton can compare'. (Notes by George Hay, 1883)
