Unknown Tongue

DURING the long French war, two old ladies in Stranraer were going to

the kirk, the one said to the other, Was it no a wonderfu' thing that

the Breetish were aye victorious ower the French in battle?--Not a

bit, said the other old lady, dinna ye ken the Breetish aye say their

prayers before ga'in into battle? The other replied, But canna the

French say their prayers as weel? The reply was most characteristic,

Hoot! jabbering bodies, wha could understan' them?
