Life with Boswell:
Boswell met Douglas at Kelhead on October 6, 1762. He described him as having "been twenty-five years abroad in the East Indies and has made a fortune of £20,000, a fine, hearty man of no great reach but much kindness of heart and a good deal of humour. He was very fond to see me, and as he has a house in London and is to be there next winter, he may be very obliging to me."
