Lady Jane Douglas

Lady Jane Douglas of Grantully, the heroine of
the long-contested Douglas cause. She
contemplated the approach of her own
death with perfect calmness, and in
anticipation of her coming demise had
all her grave-clothes ready, and the
turnpike stair whitewashed. When
asked by her only son, Archibald
(before mentioned), if she wished to
be put in the family burial vault at
Beaufort, in Kilmorack, she replied,
” Indeed, Archie, ye needna put yoursel
to any fash aboot me, for I
carena though ye lay me aneath that
hearthstane.”
