Book Excerpt

terest it turns, provided it catches the public attention; for the quality of the wine (could we but insure it) may, according to the old proverb, render the bush unnecessary, or of little consequence.

I congratulate you upon your having found it consistent with prudence to establish your Tilbury, and approve of the colour, and of your boy's livery, (subdued green and pink.)--As you talk of completing your descriptive poem on the "Ruins of Kennaquhair, with notes by an Antiquary," I hope you have procured a steady horse.--I remain, with compliments to all friends, dear Captain, very much

Yours, &c. &c. &c.

Sir Walter Scott is an author with a tough style. Tough I said; but thoroughly enjoyable. His books are no paperback novels. He will take us to the medieval age in his slow moving train. I am a slow reader and I enjoy his writing word by word. I would recommend that the prequel 'The Monastery' should be read along with this book.
