  1. I'll save ye yer 8 pounds and tell ye that there were none better than Red Comyn, ye bastards, and ye shouldn't have put him to the sword, him being the most royal blood of the lot of ye. His mother was royal and so was his father's mother. Alas, ye would be floatin' in gold, beer and lassies if ye would have let 'em alone. But now ye couldn't let a good thing be, could ye?
