Title Gentile Account, page 149
Description Of course we set to work to leave the place right off, but before we had finished packing the mob came. They said they had come to search for concealed arms. Mother had some, too, at the bottom of a chest! They poked in the beds, and up the chimneys and found nothing. Then they began tumbling the things out of the boxes we had just packed. We knew they would kill poor Father if they found the pistols, and my dear quiet Mother stepped forward like a tigress and blazed out at them. Said she, "I have a sick husband and sick children, and I'm worn out with packing those boxes for our journey. If any one of you thinks there's an article of his here, name it, and I'll open the boxes, and show that I haven't. I won't let any one tumble up my things again with my consent, and if you do it by force, do it-and be damned!" She fairly screamed that out, and then sat down on the box and went off into hysterics. She didn't think, but it was the wisest thing she could do, for some of them swore but more laughed and took the others away, saying Americans didn't fight o w men and girls. And so we got away!" Saturday Feb 8th. I went today to see a sick woman, and then to see an old woman from the East Nook of Fife. She had heard that I came from there and begged that I would come to visit her. Poor creature, it was a great disappointment to her that I "nippit my words like ony English body", and I could scarcely understand her Scotch. Two of her daughters are married to a very nice looking American here. He saw them when in Fifeshire on a Mission. I can't imagine what possessed him to marry them, countrywomen of mine though they are! 149
