Excerpt from Little Anna Mark

"Come in hither, Joe Janet! Here you will see at one eye-blink the whole cursed pack kennelled, the lying priest that slandered me, the fatted English calf that disinherited me, and the gap-toothed old hound that begat me - and did me other disservices beside!"

Excerpt from Little Anna Mark

"Come in hither, Joe Janet! Here you will see at one eye-blink the whole cursed pack kennelled, the lying priest that slandered me, the fatted English calf that disinherited me, and the gap-toothed old hound that begat me - and did me other disservices beside!"

These are the first words that ever I remember hearing my father speak - clearly, that is, for I must have both seen and heard him often enough in my innocency before that I grew word-conscious.

I can recall the scene yet as clear in my minds eye - aye, clearer than the dinner I have this day eaten or the pattern on the flowered-silk waistcoat which lies folded in the drawer at my elbow.

It was in the wide kitchen or house-place of James Brydson's change-house (or common wayside inn), which sits on the brae overlooking the little Scottish town of New Milns.
