Notes:

Francis Drake, writing in 1742, also observes “Mailross, I shall take it upon me to say, has been the most exquisite structure of the kind in either kingdom.” Lastly comes the poet, also pointing out, as the great architectural attractions of Melrose, its intricate and exquisite stone carving:

Nor herb nor floweret glistened there
But was carved in the cloister arches as fair.” (p. 299)

The heart of Sir Walter Scott was buried here, at Old Melrose, as it is also called.

The romantic ruin is here shown by the light of the moon, I think, or of a thin wintry sun.
