|James Hogg||knew||Robert Tannahill||
"Hogg had been in the Highlands on business ... and Paisley not being far off their way, Hogg expressed a desire to see Tannahill, the Weaver Poet of Paisley ... [James] Barr has said Hogg was enraptured with their company, and it was a treat to see the friendship of the two bards. The contrast was striking - the one healthly, lively, and off-hand; the other delicate, quiet, and unassuming" (Semple lxxx)
