Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, Vol. 170: July-December, 1901 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, Vol. 170: July-December, 1901Robert Tullis, when I knew him many years later, was a silent, gaunt man, but that may have been because he had so much to remember. This night he discovered himself a new creature to his neighbours. He was standing across his own door when the crowd arrived. It's up wi' the souters o' the Bowes, he welcomed them, and jeered them to the garden end. With his frank and supple tongue, he was like the Bowes, he welcomed them, and jeered them to the garden end. With his frank and supple tongue, he was like a man gone a length in drink, extraordinary glib and impudent. He was fey, you would have said, only he lived long years afterwards.My uncle, James Seton, a very dull man, was for ever giving voice to the thoughts which he conceived to be pass ing through my Aunt Janet's mind. So now he says, The Devil has sent for his own at last whereas Aunt Janet, good woman, no doubt was thinking that the Devil has a terrible claim upon us all - a very different thing.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
