During the period of his pastorate at Forfar, Mr. Jamieson became the author of no fewer than six publications, some of which excited much interest at the time. But none of them have lived in the same sense that some of his later works have done. Neither are any of his earlier productions of such a kind as one would expect to come from an enthusiastic, word-sifting antiquary. Among others of this period we find The Sorrows of Slavery: A Poem containing a Faithful Statement of Facts regarding the Slave Trade; as also Eternity: A Poem addressed to Free Thinkers and Philosophical Christians; there is also A Vindication of the Doctrine of Scripture, and of the Primitive Faith concerning the Divinity of Christ, in reply to Dr. Priestley; a work of a different nature, and which attained to great popularity, and ran through many editions, was the one entitled Sermons on the Heart. By these and similar labours, Jamieson won for himself an honourable name in the field of literature.
