My greatest misfortune would be to marry into a family who would carry me as their shame.
”Come Jamie’s turn, he walks up to the post — some men have to be dragged, but not him — steady as a soldier and puts his hands up to be bound … Courage like that is uncommon rare. It wasna ignorance, mind; he’d just seen two men flogged and he knew the same was coming to him. Boldness in battle is nothing out of the way for a Scotsman, ye ken, but to face down fear in cold blood is rare in any man. He was but nineteen at the time.”
I hope to afford you more clarity in the future…
