    Alexander Mackay was a pioneer missionary to Uganda. He was born in in Rhyme, a village not far from Aberdeen. His father was a minister of the Free Church of Scotland, so it is no surprise to learn that the Bible and the Westminster Catechism were the two most important books in the house. In a house at the south end of The Square is the birthplace of Alexander Mackay. A little known missionary in his native country but in Uganda he is revered. Born in Rhynie in to a deeply religious and highly literate family, he went on to study engineering.

    Andrew Melrose (5 February - 6 November ) was a British publisher. Although he was noted for publishing theological works, he was also active in promoting new fiction, and offered a substantial cash prize for the best first novel submitted to his firm. Page - I was not ever thus, nor prayed that thou shouldst lead me on; I loved to choose and see my path; but now lead thou me on. I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears, pride ruled my will: remember not past years. So long thy power hath blest me, sure it still will lead me on, o'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, till the night is gone, and with the morn those angel faces .
