Robert Cumming

Alexander Campbell, in Introduction to the History of Poetry in Scotland (1798) 330.



In 1791, Poems on several occasions, to which is added, the history of Mr. William Wallace, a novel, by R. CUMMING, were printed for the author, by Grant and Moir. This volume is the production of an ingenious and amiable man, by profession a staymaker, whose leisure had enabled him to pay his devotions to the muses, in no common strain.
