Charles Calder Mackintosh,William Taylor
Charles Calder Mackintosh (1806-1868) was the son of Dr. Angus Mackintosh (1763-1832) who was the Church of Scotland minister of Tain for over thirty years. The father was one of the eminent ministers of Ross-shire written about in Days of the Fathers in Ross-shire by John Kennedy. His son was ordained as his colleague and successor in 1828. In 1843 at the Disruption he became the first Free Church minister of Tain.
Like his father he was an outstanding minister of the Gospel and an able preacher. The volume contains twenty-three of his sermons and both a biographical account and a 'Sketch of the Religious History of the Northern Highlands' by William Taylor who was born in Tain, brought up under the ministry of his father, and also a Disruption minister.
