O Boyne, once famed for battles, sports, and conflicts,
right glad of the sums which came to him then for do-ing this work.
“Those preliminaries being disposed of, two of the party strolled to the bank of the river and, tempted by the coolness and beauty of the stream, went in to bathe. In the course of their gambol they crossed to the opposite shore, where they encountered an individual whose society, under the present circumstances, afforded them very little satisfaction.
