106 THE DUKE OF GORDON'S DAUGHTER.
" 0 ! if I were at the glens of Foudlen,
Where hunting I have been, I would find the way to bonny Castle-Gordon,
Without either stockings or shoon."               so
When she came to Castle-Gordon,
And down upon the green, The porter gave out a loud shout,
" 0 yonder comes Lady Jean."
" O you are welcome, bonny Jeany Gordon, 85
You are dear welcome to me; Tou are welcome, dear Jeany Gordon,
But away with your Captain Ogilvie."
Now over seas went the captain,
As a soldier under command;                         so
A message soon followed after,
To come and heir his brother's land.
" Come home, you pretty Captain Ogilvie,
And heir your brother's land ; Come home, ye pretty Captain Ogilvie,             as
Be earl of Northumberland."
" 0 what does this mean ? " says the captain ;
" Where's my brother's children three ? " " They are dead and buried,
And the lands they are ready for thee." iw
