Wedderburne, David, [note] the friend of Dr. Arthur Johnston, was
also a cultivator of Latin poetry. See Del. Poet. Scot. [note] An elegy, addressed by him to Johnston, is one of those
productions of modern Latinity which Mr. Wasse [note] recommends
for republication. “Wedderburn,” says Dr. Young, [note] “is not so generally known as a
commentator, as one of the Latin poets; but his posthumous edition of Persius, [note] which, by the care of his brother Alexander, [note] was published at Amsterdam, (1664) ought to have secured him a
respectable place among our philologers.” Wedderburn was
rector of the grammar school of Aberdeen.
