Walter Scott: The Keepsake Stories ================================== a machine-readable transcription Version 1.0: 1993-02-06 The text of the three stories is taken from Waverley Novels, vol. XLI: 'The Highland Widow', published by Archibald Constable and Co, Westminster, 1896. The order of the stories in the original is: Aunt Margaret's Mirror The Tapestried Chamber The Laird's Jock Each story is placed in a separate file, and each file contains the author's introduction to the story. The lines of the files follow that of the text, except that end-of-line hyphenations have been removed. Three misprints have been removed: p. ???: extraneous period (Mrs. Swinton) (Mr and Mrs is set without periods in the text( p. 328: a double (re- || remain) p. 344: a missing inner quote (how then shall I ask it?'') all of which where found in the Mirror. Special markup: _ _ indicates italics in the original text --- indicates an em-dash <oe> indicates the oe ligature <c,> indicates the c-cedilla <e'> indicates e acute Small capitals have been replaced with lower-case letters. Notes: The sequence `L.20' which appears in the introduction to the `Mirror' is so printed in the text. The Centenary Edition of the Waverley Novels uses a pound sterling sign instead of the `L.'.
