Letter Fae the Tolbooth     by: Davidson, James Steven

Dear Ma,
Fit like ma? Hope yer daein aa richt. I'm writin tae tell ye that I'm awa tae be hung. So, can ye come an get me ooto here?
I met this mannie an he asked me tae play ma fiddle. So I said 'Aa richt' an I played fur him. Ma fiddle is the only friend I've got. I've bin cryin ma een oot fur ye. Goodbye ma. Here's a song fur ye.

I really love ye,
