Ossian's Poems, 5th book of Fingal. London, 1809. "The gloomy heroes fought.--Fierce Ullin fell. Young Lamderg came all pale to the daughter of the generous Tuathal:--'What blood,' she said, 'what blood runs down my warrior's side?' 'It is Ullin's blood,' the chief replied, 'Thou fairer than snow: Gechlossa, let me rest her awhile.' The mighty Lamderg died. Three days she mourned beside her love:--the hunters found her cold:--they raised this tomb over the three." [P. 36.]
