The officer's duties were chiefly up on High Street. He seldom crossed the bridge, and it happened that he had never seen Bobby before.

Willie exploded. 'What for did ye get me to mak' sic a cod o' masel'? 'Cod o' yersel'? Me? 'Ay, you! gettin' me to send a caird to ma aunt! What for did ye dae it? Macgregor stared.

"Ken ye a place they ca' Mains o' Glashruach?" As she spoke she let go her shawl, and it opened from her face like two curtains. "Lord! it's the witch-wife!" cried Donal, retreating a pace in his astonishment.

Sandy was mad at me, for he was no curler, and he says, 'Jo Strachan, if you gang to Rashie-bog you'll assuredly be brocht hame a corp. I didna heed him, though, and off I gaed."

With neither wife nor child, I have nothing but you, my lord, and I have nothing to live for but your weel. When ye were angry wi' me I didna blame you, I coonted ye just, but 'twas to me as when the sun gaes behind the clouds. I cared neither to eat nor drink had it not been for your sake, I didna care to live.

You ken the family werena well pleased when your mother married, and the sisters didna meet often till Miss Marian grew ill. They would fain have had her away to Italy, or some far awa' place, but nothing would content her but just her sister, her sister, and so she came home to the manse.
