Adam Smith, the celebrated author of ' an Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of nations,' was born in the town of Kirkcaldy on the 5th of June 1723. His father, at an early period of life, practised as a writer to the signet in Edinburgh, and officiated as private secretary to the Earl of Loudon, during the time his Lordship was principal secretary of state for Scotland and keeper of the great seal, but afterwards settled at Kirkcaldy, where, for some time before his death, he held the office of comptroller of the customs.
