Сторінка 86 - By the time these words were spoken, even-song was nearly done. The King paused, studying to give him an answer.

So prompt were all their proceedings, that the young King was crowned at Scone, near that city, within twenty days of his father's death. It was called the Mourning Coronation ; for the ancient crown of Scotland being held over on the baby-brow of the royal infant, most of the witnesses and assistants of the ceremony burst into an ' infectious passion' of sobs and tears.
