The Risle valley is where many Scots fled after Culloden, one of the more famous was Sir William Gordon, who died in Brionne, never seeing Cornhill, Scotland again. The current guardian of La Behottiere, in Scotland the Factor, is A. J. Harris, a former Royal Marine. Above the gate "Commit thy work to God" rises. In the pavement stones of the two and a half acre formal garden, it says "Ici est Ecosse" (Here is Scotland). There is no Scot quite as Scot as a Scot abroad. Are we Norwegians, Frenchmen, dome rumour us to be the descendants of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. What we are, my cousins, are a band a brothers, from one of the most ancient and proudest families. Our family will live forever. We will live forever.

What is this "descendants of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene" blasphemy? Who perpetuates this ancient garbage? It must be the work of the sons of him who when asked "Whence comest thou?" replied "From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it."
Let there be no mistake, we are children of God, and sons of Abraham.
