Galt, John (17791839)

Galt, John, Scotch novelist, born at Irvine; educated at Greenock, where he held a post in the Custom-house for a time; essayed literature, wrote “The Ayrshire Legatees,” “The Annals of the Parish,” “Sir Andrew Wylie,” “The Entail,” and “The Provost”; died of paralysis at Greenock; Carlyle, who met him in London in 1832, says, “He had the air of a broad, gaucie, Greenock burgher; mouth indicating sly humour and self-satisfaction; eyes, old and without lashes, gave me a wae interest for him; says little, but that little peaceable, clear, and gutmüthig” (17791839).
