Old Mortality, Volume 2. Summary


Old Mortality, Volume 2. - The origin of "Old Mortality", perhaps the best of Scott's historical romances, is well known. In a hollow of the hill, about a quarter of a mile from the field of battle, was a shepherd's hut; a miserable cottage, which, as the only enclosed spot within a moderate distance, the leaders of the presbyterian army had chosen for their council-house. Towards this spot Burley guided Morton, who was surprised, as he approached it, at the multifarious confusion of sounds which issued from its precincts.
