103 ページ - ... world was like to regard him as a thief and a cheat, and he took that waur than even the ruin of his house and hauld. On he rode, little caring where. It was a dark night turned, and the trees made it yet darker, and he let the beast take its ain road through the wood; when, all of a sudden, from tired and wearied that it was before, the nag began to spring, and flee, and stend, that my gudesire could hardly keep the saddle ; upon the whilk, a horseman, suddenly riding up beside him, said, "That's...

Sir Robert sat, or, I should say, lay, in a great armed chair, wi' his grand velvet gown, and his feet on a cradle; for he had baith gout and gravel, and his face looked as gash and ghastly as Satan's. Major Weir sat opposite to him, in a red laced coat, and the Laird's wig on his head ; and aye as Sir Robert girned wi' pain, the jackanape girned too, like a sheep's-head between a pair of tangs —...
100 ページ - But when a' was ower, and the Laird was beginning to settle his affairs, every tenant was called up for his arrears, and my gudesire for the full sum that stood against him in the rentalbook. Weel, away he trots to the Castle, to tell his story, and there he is introduced to Sir John...
108 ページ - Something flees at him wi' a vengeance, maist dang him back ower — bang gaed the knight's pistol, and Hutcheon, that held the ladder, and my gudesire that stood beside him, hears a loud skelloch. A minute after, Sir John flings the body of the jackanape down to them, and cries that the siller is fund, and that they should come up and help him. And there was the bag of siller sure aneugh, and mony orra things besides, that had been missing for mony a day.
106 ページ - MacCallum brought a pair of pipes might have served the piper of Donald of the Isles. But he gave my gudesire a nudge as he offered them; and looking secretly and closely, Steenie saw that the chanter was of steel, and heated to a white heat; so he had fair warning not to trust his fingers with it. So he excused himself again, and said he was faint and frightened, and had not wind aneugh to fill the bag. "Then ye maun eat and drink, Steenie," said the figure; "for we do little else here; and it's...
107 ページ - What ! — That is yesterday ! — Villain, thou must have gone to hell for this ! " " I got it from your honour's father — whether he be in heaven or hell, I know not,
102 ページ - Somewhere the money must be, if there is a word of truth in your story," said Sir John ; " I ask where you think it is — and demand a correct answer ?" " In hell ! if you will have my 'thoughts of it," said my gudesire, driven to extremity, — " in hell ! with your father, his jackanape, and his silver whistle.
102 ページ - Far be it frae me to say so," said Stephen. "Do you charge any of my people with having taken it?" "I wad be laith to charge them that may be innocent," said my gudesire; "and if there be any one that is guilty, I have nae proof." "Somewhere the money must be, if there is a word of truth in your story," said Sir John; "I ask where you think it is, and demand a correct answer?
104 ページ - There was the fierce Middleton, and the dissolute Rothes, and the crafty Lauderdale; and Dalyell, with his bald head and a beard to his girdle; and Earlshall, with Cameron's blude on his hand; and wild Bonshaw, that tied blessed Mr. Cargill's limbs till the blude sprung; and Dumbarton Douglas, the twiceturned traitor baith to country and king.
