Unfortunately for the memory of Zachary Boyd , the parodies of his work seem to be better remembered than the work itself. For example, many listeners will know
' And Jacob made for his wee Josie
A tartan coat to keep him cosy.
And what for no ? There was nae harm To keep the bairnie saft and warm.' and have forgotten that he was a distinguished minister of the Barony Church, Glasgow, and Dean of Faculty, Rector, and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Glasgow for seven years. It was his ambition to write a paraphrase of the Old Testament in verse, and he actually published the Psalms of David ' in meeter'. But the greater amount of his work has not been published. In 1650 he preached before Oliver Cromwell and ' railled at him to his face ' at great length. Cromwell was not long, however, in getting his own back. He invited Boyd to dinner and spent three hours with him in prayer.
Valentine Dunn 's play consists of eleven scenes and gives a full account of the main incidents in Boyd's life.
