The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Two Douce Cameronians Self-Martyrs for Conscience Sake

Two humble but honest and devout Cameronians were in the habit of leaving their native village, and travelling to Glasgow, a distance of more than twenty miles, for the purpose of attending a church, and hearing a minister of their own persuasion. In the evening they travelled back half way; but were obliged to rest in a moorland cot until the succeeding morning would fit them for their journey. On one occasion being more than usually fatigued, one of them, awaking about the middle of the night, thus addressed his friend:

"John, Iíll tell you ae thing and thatís no twa, if thae kirk folk get to heaven at last, theyíll get there a hantle easier than we do."
