Boston on soulpatches...

Posted by

My good friend, Joe Holland, pointed out to me (in a "down" moment at Presbytery yesterday) a fascinating piece in Thomas Boston's Memoirs (Vol. XII of The Complete Works of Thomas Boston [Tentmaker, 2002]):

"Having been advised before to cut my hair, for my health, at that time I got a wig; and thereafter wore one all along; till after my coming to Etrick, finding it troublesome when going abroad, I laid it aside, and betook me again to my own hair; which up to this day I wear." (p.53).
