Duthac, Abbot of Aberbrothock, for behoof of another Baron of the house of Bradwardine, who had valiantly defended the patrimony of that monastery against certain encroaching nobles.

The looks of the man were as wild and rude as his attire---his keen black eyes never rested one moment fixed upon a single object, but constantly traversed all around, as if they ever sought some danger to oppose, some plunder to seize, or some insult to revenge. With all the requisites for a fine player, and especially with a profound study of his art, and reverence for its difficulties, it must have required habit to familiarize him with the exertion of his own powers.

The trustees on the high roads and other public works, so ready to stake their personal credit for carrying on public improvements, will no longer possess the power of raising funds by doing so. But although these important matters may be briefly told in narrative, like a newspaper report of a Chancery suit, yet, with all the urgency which Waverley could use, the real time which the law proceedings occupied, joined to the delay occasioned by the mode of travelling at that period, rendered it considerably more than two months ere Waverley, having left England, alighted once more at the mansion of the Laird of Duchran to claim the hand of his plighted bride.

The film’s depiction of Prince Edward II as a bisexual may not be entirely inaccurate, though it bares noting that he did have as many as five children. He was awarded the Dickin Medal for his feats during the Battle of Hong Kong in World War II. While he was deep sunk in his reverie, the rustle of tartans was heard behind him, a friendly arm clasped his shoulders, and a friendly voice exclaimed, Waverley turned, and was warmly embraced by Fergus Mac-Ivor. ``A thousand welcomes to Holyrood, once more possessed by her legitimate sovereign!

Odette did tell her story many times in schools, churches and synagogues. Bradwardine, as confirming or illustrating his own favourite anecdotes. Danish women serve in tank crews, including those that were deployed for peacekeeping in Bosnia. (Although peacekeeping is not usually “combat,” Danish tanks had earlier battled Bosnian Serb forces.) Denmark’s decision to include women in all military roles resulted from extensive trials in the mid-1980s to find out how women performed in various land and sea combat roles. “The trials proved very satisfactory, and today all functions are open to women….

The traditional civil-military relationship is frayed and ill-defined. To Franny, it seems like everyone is afraid most of the time. It was at this moment that Rose learned, by open-mouthed fame, with all sorts of exaggeration, that Waverley had killed the smith of Cairnvreckan, in an attempt to arrest him; had been cast into a dungeon by Major Melville of Cairnvreckan, and was to be executed by martial law within three days.

Matches were then made for running, wrestling, leaping, pitching the bar, and other sports, in which this feudal militia displayed incredible swiftness, strength, and agility; and accomplished the purpose which their Chieftain had at heart, by impressing on Waverley no light sense of their merit as soldiers, and of the power of him who commanded them by his nod.<*> of uncommon acuteness, fire, and ambition, which, as he became acquainted with the state of the country, gradually assumed a mixed and peculiar tone, that could only have been acquired Sixty Years since. ``And what number of such gallant fellows have the happiness to call you leader?'' asked Waverley. ``In a good cause, and under a chieftain whom they loved, the race of Ivor have seldom taken the field under five hundred claymores.

So dexterously are these touches combined with the ancient structure, that the rifaccimento, in many instances, could scarcely have been detected, without the avowal of the bard himself. Herbert said "He is every prince who ever went in search of the Holy Grail." My brother Fergus is anxious that you should join him in his present enterprise. He has devised a useful machine for measuring the quantity of wood in standing trees---he has thrown out hints for the preservation and the cure of the dry rot in timber, and upon diseases in growing trees; he has treated of the mode of valuing and selling bark, and several other subjects; and as he speaks generally from practical knowledge, we may, using a phrase of Chaucer, in somewhat a different sense, fairly dismiss him with the compliment paid to the Squire's Yeoman, in the _Canterbury Tales:_--- We may be blamed in these desultory remarks for not having said something upon the subject of planting woods from the acorn, instead of the nursery.
