John Galt The Provost. During a recent visit to the West Country, among other old friends we paid our respects to Mrs Pawkie, the relict of the Provost of that name, who three several times enjoyed the honour of being chief magistrate in Gudetown. Considering the veneration in which Mr Pawkie had been through life regarded by his helpmate, we must confess that her eulogium on the merits of his work did not impress us with the most profound persuasion that it was really deserving of much attention.
Using a comedic touch, John Galt delves into the issues of use and misuse of power. The Provost, one of Galt's the Tales of the West novels, is heralded as his one true masterpiece.
