See Walter Scott's Marmion.--Painted in London, 1810. "A Bishop by the altar stood,/ A noble lord of Douglas' blood,/ With mitre sheen, and rocquet white,/ Yet showed his meek and thoughtful eye,/ But little pride of prelacy, &c. &c." "Beside him, ancient Angus stood,/ Dull'd his furr'd gown and sable hood/ O'er his large form and visage pale/ He wore a cap and shirt of mail,/ And leaned his large and wrinkled hand/ Upon the huge and sweeping beard, &c. &c." "Then at the altar Wilton kneels,/ And Clare the spurs bound on his heels,/ And think what next he must have felt/ At buckling of the falchion belt/ And judge how Clara changed her hue, &c. &c." Scott's Marmion, Canto 6, Stanzas 11 and 12. [Pp. 31-32.]
