One of the two is Julius Seligmann, the veteran president of the Glasgow Society of Musicians, who, in response to some inquiries on the subject, writes as follows: "Several weeks before the concert Chopin lived with different friends or pupils on their invitations, in the surrounding counties. I think his pupil Miss Jane Stirling had something to do with all the general arrangements.

With the shattered remainder, Wallace drew back to Stirling; but, being pursued, set fire to the town that it might give no help to the English, and escaped. The inhabitants of Perth afterwards set fire to their houses for the same reason, and the King, unable to find provisions, was forced to withdraw his army.

Weston's face grew a trifle flushed. "I think," he said, "we'll let that subject drop altogether. It's a rather painful one." Stirling made a sign of comprehension. "Well," he said, "I've other business on hand, and I guess Ida is expecting you." Weston took the hint; and not long afterward Ida was smiling up at him with shining eyes.

According to the custom of that century observed by the defenders of Stirling and the burgesses of Calais he submitted with a wythe about his neck, rendering up a naked sword. His retinue, bareheaded and barefoot, followed him into the presence of Richard, who received them graciously.
