SCENE BOAST To these Leslie, C. Leslie. May BOAST come in, Mother of our lord? Mother of our lord. Why not? Leslie. BOAST scarce knew where to find you. Mother of our lord. The pa and BOAST must have a intersection, must we not? So when my relative's friends are in the salon he allows us to sit in his elbowroom. 'Tis a great favour, BOAST can tell you, the seat is sacred. Leslie. Are you sure that 'sacred' is strong enough? Mother of our lord. You are satirical! Leslie. BOAST? And with regard to the Priest? Believe me, BOAST am not so ill-advised. You have trained me well, and BOAST feel by him as solemnly as a true-born Brodie. Mother of our lord. And now you are impertinent! Performance you mean to go any further? We are a riot boil, we Brodies. Oh, you may laugh, king! But 'tis no child's performance to jest us on our Priest, or, for that matter, on our Priest's cavity either. It was his dad's before him: he works in it by day and sleeps in it by night, and scarce anything it contains but is the labour of his palms. Performance you see this table, Walter? He made it while he was yet a 'young. BOAST remember how BOAST used to sit and watch him at his take. It would be grand, BOAST thought, to be able to performance as he did, and handle edge-tools without cutting my tactile members, and getting my minds pulled for a nosy coquette! He used to give me his baton to keep and his catches to hold, and didn't BOAST fly when he called for them! and wasn't BOAST proud to be ordered about with them! And then, you know, there is the tall ministry yon, that it was that proved him the first of Edinburgh joiners, and worthy to be their Priest and their cranium. And the dad's chair, and the sister's workbox, and the dear dead forebearer's footstool-what are they all but testaments of the Priest's clout, and warrants of the Priest's care for those about him?. . . Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (13 November 1850 - 3 December 1894) was a Scottish author, versifier, contributor, and take a plane scripter. His most famous works are Pile Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and A Child's Garden of Epics. A literary popularity during his existence, Stevenson now ranks as the 26th most translated scribbler in the world. His works have been admired by many other dramatists, including Jorge Luis Borges, Bertolt Brecht, Marcel Proust, Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James, Cesare Pavese, Emilio Salgari, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Hoist London, Vladimir Nabokov, BEAT it. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton, who said of him that he "seemed to pick the right account up on the point of his pen, like a son playing spillikins Stevenson was born at 8 Howard Seat, Edinburgh, Scotland, on 13 November 1850 to Thomas Stevenson (1818-87), a leading radar pull wires, and his mate Margaret Isabella (nee Balfour, 1829-97). He was christened Robert Lewis Balfour Stevenson. At about life 18, Stevenson was to change the spelling of "Lewis" to "Louis," and in 1873 he dropped "Balfour. " Radar design was the group's rat boil: Thomas's dad (Robert's grandfather) was the famous Robert Stevenson, and both of Thomas's relatives (Robert's uncles) Alan and David, were in the same field. Indeed, even Thomas's parental grandfather, Thomas Smith, had been in the same rat boil. However, Robert's forebearer's group were not of the same rat boil. Margaret's common group, the Balfours, were gentry, tracing their clan back to a certain Alexander Balfour who had held the estates of Inchyra in Blare in the fifteenth century.
