Excerpt from A Northern Lily: Five Years of an Uneventful Life
'On the Home farm some watch the ploughman's furrow,
And talk of bullocks and the price of oats.'
'A Quarter-Past five, ' Said Elsie Ross, 'and no post yet.'
The letters at Rossie were usually brought in with the kettle at afternoon tea-time - the only post in the day, strange as it may seem to the southern reader.
'Not that I expect anything - but - here it is - and - yes! there is one for me. Not from Fraulein - from - I don't know whom.'
She opened the letter, which was rather long, and adorned with numerous dashes, flourishes, and points of exclamation; and read it thoughtfully.
' - to leave your Scottish home, and find a resting-place under our roof, where, I need not say, you will receive a true Welcome!'
'To leave my Scottish home!' said Elsie to herself. 'I won't, - and yet, perhaps -'
'Elsie, do you want to see the new bull?' said a gruff, an exceedingly gruff, voice in the passage.
'I do, papa, ' said Elsie, jumping up and thrusting the letter into her pocket. 'Cant give my mind to it now, but he'll need to be consulted. I'll speak to him at dinner; at least, I will if he likes the bull.'
Rossie was a small old-fashioned house on the northeast coast of Scotland. Very lonely; for, except in the little fishing town of St. Ethernans the Rosses had no neighbours within ten miles.
