Excerpt from The Harp of the Scottish Covenant: Poems, Songs, and Ballads Relating to the Covenanting Struggle

The Solemn League and Covenant
Cost Scotland blood - cost Scotland tears:
But it seal'd Freedom's sacred cause -
If thou'rt a slave, indulge thy sneers!

- Robert Burns.

"But I had a feeling of awe when writing 'The City of the Plague,' 'Unimore,' and more strongly when inditing a long MS. poem on the Covenanters, which, I believe, has run on to five thousand lines, but which will not see the light till I cease to see it. 'Indeed!' I said; 'why not sooner?' 'The fact is,' he said, 'the feeling that pervades Scotland - its every hill and strath, Highlands as well as Lowlands - about that stalwart and noble race, is itself a perpetual poem, humming through the Scottish land and the Scottish heart; and I should be afraid lest my effort should fall short of the national feeling. I once thought of writing a prose work, too, either in shape of a tale or of an history, on these brave men. Scott has not done them full justice in "Old Mortality," otherwise the masterpiece of his genius.'" - Professor John Wilson - see "The History of a Man," p. 116.
