Besides this, I found that my stock of languages was actually quite run out here in the north; for I might as well never have paid a shilling for my learning, it being of not the least use to offer to talk Latin or Greek to a Highland wife on my road and as for plain En lish, they no more understood it than I did t eir Gaelic.Well, towards home I returned, at length, as I before said; and having risen early one fine summer's morning, arrived betimes at the pleasant town of Inverness, meaning to pass directly through it, keeping straight on in my line of march to the southward, and taking advantage of any offered conveyance that might carry me through the lonesome Moor of Culloden in the neighbourhood.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
