Not illustrated. 1894 Excerpt: ...Accounts; see the quotations in Tytler, Hist. Scot. i. 368. 276. Lownyt all with treis, all sheltered with trees. See Loun in Jamieson. However, lownyt here means no more than 'covered'; it was not so wholly sheltered that no wind could blow there at all, as the story shows us. The Edinb. MS. has lompnyt, which Jamieson explains by 'laid, ' without any authority. This lompnyt can only be a corruption; the reading loned (Hart) is somewhat more correct. Cf. Ann. Scot. ii. 64, note. 321.

It means that he only saw the English in small companies at a time, and so was deceived as to their number. 337-338. "If he would make haste, he would very easily defeat them, and rescue all the cows." 345. Here again MS. E omits 12 lines, owing to the repetition of ky at the end of 11. 338 and 356. Innes notes that MS. E omits two lines here, but he must have meant twelve. So, at 1. 336 above, he notes that MS. E omits seven lines; but he must have meant eight. 353.
