The Rangers a dozen years ago without Mr. Peter Campbell would
have been like the Queen's Park now with Mr. William Sellar left out. He was the life and soul of the forward
division, and it is not too much to say of him that a finer dribbler and harder worker never kicked leather. Poor
Campbell, like so many more of the old lot, is gone to his account! In a terrible storm in the Bay of Biscay, which
left many a home desolate, seven years ago, the steamer in which he was chief engineer foundered, and not a soul
was left to tell the tale.* Quiet and unassuming in manner, Mr.
Campbell was beloved by all, and his untimely death is still mourned by the Rangers, for whom he did so much.
In 1878-79 he was in such good form that he was chosen to play against Wales, and in 1876 and 1878 did duty
for Glasgow against Sheffield.
