James Thomson, the English poet, author of The Seasons, was born at Ednam, in Roxburghshire, on the 11th of September 1700 - the third son and fourth child of Thomas Thomson, minister of that place. His poetry gave expression to the achievements of Newtonian science and to an England reaching toward great political power based on commercial and maritime expansion.
