But there they durst not stay then, Nor make Attempt for fear that Hemp, At length their Necks should draw them. From Aberdeen in haste they hy, Unto Dunnotea came then, Where Earl of Marshal then did ly, A Man of worth Fame then; And General buchan did command, His House that they might have there, But he si bravely did defend, That they prov’d but like Knaves there. They hois’d up Sail and turn’d their Tail, And Straight towards the north then, And for to join, to get some Coin, Fra the Earl of Seaforth then, But he was wiser than they thought, And never thinks to part sea; With that he got, by his good Lot, Like Fools from thence their Way gae. There’s Frendrets Lord and Oliphant And Douglass them all three there, We have bereaved them of their holds, No more now can they do there. And Davie Graham thinks meikle Shame, With the Earl of Dunkill then, And Turn-coat Pet lokks now so blate, Himself he’s like to hang then. Dumfermline drives his Spurgald Horse, And Buchan whips with Wand then, Cannon like a weary Cross, Follows up the Band then. My Lord Scoforth fles fra the North, Unto the Court to dwell there; He’s made a’ swear for many a Year, He never will rebel main.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
