In the introduction, MacKenzie addresses his tenants thus: "This Treatise, though applicable to many parts of Scotland, is chiefly intended for the benefit of you, my Cottar Tenants, since, although I so frequently have the satisfaction of meeting you personally, the little time afforded for conversing upon a variety of matters connected with your welfare, induces me now thus to address you and offer my assistance in alleviating that want of plenty and comfort which amongst you all is but too apparent."
