Title Gentile Account, page 135
Description tea-table, and with those great long legs of his he could stretch under and squeeze my foot between his feet. "The evening wore away very slowly. I could see him whenever he dared looking over at me, but I would almost rather not have had him come. I kept thinking "How shall I ever say goodbye before them all!" When the time came, they all went into the hall to see him off, and they shook hands all around. I had hung back, but when he turned and took a step towards me and held out his hand I fell among their feet!" "You fainted?" "Yes, I swooned dead away. You see we were to be parted for a whole year. He couldn't stand it then, but picked me up in his arms. `This is my wife' says he, `and I'll hide it no longer.' My mistress turned the key in the door. `If that's it,' said she `you don't leave here this night.' So he stayed three days, and oh but we were happy, and when he went I was light of heart to think no shame any longer of its being known. I was his wife. He was gone a year. My mistress was sore vexed with her husband at first for not telling her, but he explained why, and although she said it would have made no difference in her feelings to me, she accepted his excuse. I prayed very earnestly that my influence might be blessed to her, and it was. The end of it was, she was converted, but she would not be baptised till McDiarmid came back, for she always said she was /US convert not mine, for all my speech was `McDiarmid says.' After that year McDiarmid was back for a little while and then away again. He labored among his own people in the Highlands, and his father was converted, and is out here now. 135
