Galloway, Robert. [note] In 1788, “Poems, Epistles, and Songs, chiefly
in the Scottish dialect, with a brief account of the Revolution, in 1688, &c. by
Robert Galloway,” were published at Glasgow. Mr.
Galloway kept a circulating library in that city. He was born at Stirling, in June,
1752, and bred to be a shoemaker; but, finding that occupation too sedentary for a weak habit of
body, became bookseller and rhymster. He died March 4, 1794.
