"[editor"s words] Previous to her arrival in Stirlingshire she had learnt to read with distinctness and propriety; and, under the tuition of Mrs Marshall, became an adept in this rare accomplishment. In books she soon discovered a substitute even for a playmate: her first hero was Wallace, with whom she became enamoured, by learning to recite Blind Harry"s Lays. Two or three of Shakespeare"s historical plays came in her way; the history of England followed. She happened to meet with Ogilvie"s translation of Homer"s Iliad, and soon learnt to idolize Achilles, and almost to dream of Hector".
