Excerpt from The Story of Iona
While stationed in Iona in the winter of 1907-8, I was asked to write something about the celebrated island for others, and began to do so with the scenes before my eyes day by day. It was my third visit, and of course I had already discovered t... he charm and interest of the place. My friends the islanders told me about their home and its traditions, and some other friends of my Community gave us books. Since my recall from Scotland I have read in the Bodleian Library, and have also been kindly helped by some Gaelic linguists and other specialists, to whom, as well as to my informants in Iona, I am most grateful. All the carved stones which are mentioned were verified for me on the spot last summer, and those in St. Oran's Chapel and Burial-ground are numbered in the order in which they then lay.
