Sir Robert Moray

Sir Robert Moray, knight, was of an ancient family of the Morays in Scotland. He was born (as I take it) in the Highlands. The Highlanders (like the Sweedes) can make their own clothes ; and I have heard Sir Robert say that he could do it. I have heard some of Ol. Cromwels army say, that the Highlanders ate only oat-meal and water and milk : that their rivers did abound with trowts but they had not the witt to take them until the English taught them.
