mounced by an elegant spire; and to perpetuate the memory of i
this gentleman a monument has been erected on Nett Hill, near ,

Bome fountain was likewise constructed in the centre of the town
by the above gentleman, who did much to contribute to the welfare j
and improvement of this place. A very handsome memorial has ;
been erected in the square behind the Palace by the executors of ;
the late Mrs. Bruce, to the memory of her father, Colonel Kobert ,
Bruce, and her uncle, John Bruce, from whom she inherited tbe I
estates of Nethill, Falldand Wood, and Grangehill, near Kinghorn. |

in August, last Tuesday in September, and Friday before Edinburgh
