The dates of the sermons, where specified, cover the period 1659-1673; in some cases the place of delivery is given. At folio vii verso is some account of Hog, taken from Robert Wodrow, ‘History’ (Edinburgh, 1722-1723), volume i, page 41. Inserted (folio i), is a letter, 1887, of Robert Cumming McDougall, Minister of Resolis, to Hog of Newliston recommending the publication of a manuscript volume of Hog's sermons, which he had seen at the Manse of Kiltearn.
