Life with Boswell:
Boswell met Drummond at Kames on October 16, 1762. He described him as having "a little haughtiness which renders him not very agreeable at first sight. So much for the shade of his character. He is at the same time a man of sense, very honest and very friendly when he has an attachment. He has done several generous things. He loves company and has humour, though it is sometimes a little dry".
