The Anecdotage of Glasgow
The Laird of Garscadden and the "Foul" Feathers

THE Laird of Garscadden and a friend happened one day after a keen run of sport, to visit unexpectedly the residence of a Water-of-Endrick farmer. The sportsmen were cordially received by the family, and, among other apologies, the gudman regretted that dinner was over, as he had just finished some excellent chickens.

"Mak’ nae apologies, George," said Garscadden; "I weel believe what you say, for I see the feathers" (alluding to some spots of pease brose) " still stickin’ on your breast."
