Duncan Broadfoot was a studious shoemaker, and
much addicted to reading works on astronomy. Ae day
he got into a heated argument wi' Saunders Veitch
regarding the merits and demerits o' the French revolution.
Duncan stood erect. His eyes flashed, and he
placed the fore-finger of his right hand in -the palm of
his left, and thus spoke: "Noo, Saunders, if I was an
inhabitant o' ane o' the maist important planets, and if
ony o' the folk thereon started a revolution, and cam'
to me and advised me to tak' up the sword, gun or
Lochaber ax as the case might be, I wad just eye them
wi' scorn, and most dignified and unmistakable disdain,
and tell them to gang to the deevil wi' baith them and
their revolutions."
