    Adolph's remaining weeks in Scotland passed quickly.  He made frequent trips to Gourock and Roseneath, and preached several times to the German congregation in Edinburgh.  Pages on pages of the Diary are filled with verses, some of which appear in the Memoir.  The prettiest of these is the play on the name "Mia," in Greek the One, in Italian Mine.


Lieblich und fein hast in kindlichem Sinn du dich Mia geheissen,
Lieblich des Wortes Music; fein ist der doppelte Sinn:
Lange Zeit warst du mir Mia, die Eine, nach der ich verlangte;
Nun, da ichs gluecklich erreicht, Mia, die Meine du bist.

(Life of Adolph Spaeth, D.D., LL.D., 1916).
