Jepson Field Book volume 13 page 160
Glasgow, Scotland [September 11, 1905]  that he is advertising when he is sleeping. His goods are on show in the window and as often as not in the full glare of electric light bulbs. Not so the London merchant. He pulls down the blinds (wooden slats) and covers up things securely, nights and Sundays. You see his name above but you cannot guess his business! A great many even put up wooden doors over their windows.  "I beg to obs-airve that I conseeder it vera hard on a God-fearin mon to tak' evidence on oath in a feeshin case" - Scotchman.  -Misuse of quite: Quite a little! Quite a number! ::::::::: [Glasgow, Scotland] September 11, 1905  Two New England ladies, at Melrose, told me of their experience in getting to Melrose. They inquired when to change. "Hike" was the reply as they understood it. Shocking Am. [American] slang! Again, they queried, but it was always just "Hike"! - (Harwick. cf. Keswick, Chiswick)  After coming out of Abbots ford sat down by the roadside, field book in hand. The old gardner came out of Sir Walter's gate, wheeling a barrow and asked me a question. Thrice repeated he his broad Scotch, then cried out: Sooil, mon, sooil, ken ye sooil you wood? Oh, yes, said I heartily, go ahead, take all you want. That's all right. Such unwanted generosity of soil in Scotland surprised the canny Scot and he turned suspiciously and said: Beant ye noo the road inginoor?  "God the first Garden made and the first city, Cain" - Cowley  We traveled in the print of olden wars,  Yet all the land was green And love we found and peace, Where fire and war had been. R.L. Stevenson
