"Black Agnes of Dunbar, as she was called by the vulgar, from her complexion, maintained an intrepid stand against the assault of the English army, and with many fierce witticims derided them from the walls. When the stones from the engines of the besiegers struck upon the battlements, she directed one of her maidens to wipe off the dust with a white napkin--a species of female defiance which greatly annoyed the English soldiers."--TITLER's "History of Scotland."
