Excerpt from The Lady of the Lake
I had also read a great deal, seen much, and heard more, of that romantic country, where I was in the habit of spending some time every autumn; and the scenery of Lock Katrine was connected with the recollection of many a dear friend and merr... y expedition of former days. This poem, the action of which lay among scenes so beautiful, and so deeply imprinted on my recollec tions, was a labour of love and it was no less so to recall the manners and incidents introduced. The frequent custom of James IV., and particu larly of James V., to walk through their kingdom in disguise, afforded me the hint of an incident, which never fails to be interesting if managed with the slightest address or dexterity.
