Life with Boswell

Boswell called on a Mr Craufurd on June 1, 1764, presumably to order some White Port which he had previously promised to send to Abraham Gronovius. According to the editors of [BIH] this Craufurd was Patrick Craufurd, but it may, in fact, have been his father, James (see James Craufurd for further info).
