The following quote is taken from Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 37 "Holyrood". Copyright (c) 1992 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   "Taken by surprise, Jamie laughed.
   "Willie said that once, to me," he said, and then the full lips clamped shut;
he spoke rarely of his dead elder brother, and never, I imagined, had he men-
tioned Willie to Colum before.
   If Colum noticed the slip, he gave no sign of it.
   "I wrote to her then," he said, looking abstractedly at one of the tilted
stones nearby. "When your brother and the babe died of the pox. That was the
first time, since she left Leoch."
   "Since she wed my father, ye mean."
   Colum nodded slowly, still looking away. "
