THE DUKE OF GORDON'S DAUGHTER. 107
" Then hoist up your sails, brave captain,
Let's be jovial and free; I'll to Northumberland, and heir my estate,
Then my dear Jeany I'll see."
He soon came to Castle-Gordon,                         ios
And down upon the green ; The porter gave out with a loud shout,
" Here comes Captain Ogilvie."
" You're welcome, pretty Captain Ogilvie, Your fortune's advanced I hear;                       no
No stranger can come unto my gates, That I do love so dear."
" Sir, the last time I was at your gates,
You would not let me in ; I'm come for my wife and children,                   us
No friendship else I claim."
" Come in, pretty Captain Ogilvie, And drink of the beer and the wine ;
And thou shalt have gold and silver,
To count till the clock strike nine."               120
" I'll have none of your gold and silver,
Nor none of your white money; But I'll have bonny Jeany Gordon ;
And she shall go now with me."
