The manuscript of the Book of Record is contained in a vellum-bound folio, consisting of unruled pages of antique paper, extending to 300 folios. It has evidently been pre pared for the purpose of being used as a daily journal of events, both of private and public life, and as a record of business affairs, payments made by tenants, cash transactions, and memoranda such as one would expect to find in a modern day-book. During the course of the period over which it extends the original intention has been altered though not abandoned, and Lord Strathmore has written a large portion of his own life in the volume, giving minute and interesting particulars as to the earlier incidents in his career. Especially has he entered into great detail regarding the alterations effected by him upon Glamis Castle and Castle Lyon (now Castle Huntly), and to students of the period his book is extremely valuable as showing the cost of work of this kind, the method of payment adopted, and the relationship betwixt capital and labour at a time of transition.
