Halaman xxiii - What need of Books ? Burn all the Statutes and their shelves : They stir us up against our Kind ; And worse, against Ourselves. We have a passion, make a law, Too false to guide us or control ! And for the law itself we fight In bitterness of soul.

Halaman xlv - They cut the legs of the horses in two — the riders through the middle of their bodies. MacGregor was brave and intrepid, but at the same time, somewhat whimsical and singular. When advancing to the charge with his company, he received five wounds, two of them from balls that pierced his body through and through. Stretched on the ground, with his head resting on his hand, he called out loudly to the Highlanders of his company, " My lads, I am not dead. By G — , I shall see if any of you does...
