  1. Is there an address to which I could send a letter regarding the definition of Harris Tweed? Many thanks. Kristina

  3. Kristina: If you have questions or comments about a definition, you can state them here. Or you can open a discussion about the definition under one of the forum headings. If you’re asking where the definition is in Johnson’s Dictionary, or whether it exists there, I’m afraid “Harris Tweed” came into the language much later than Johnson’s time (the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary dates it as late 19th century).
