The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 1 "The Corbies' Feast". Copyright (c) 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   " "Wagon?" The prisoner was showing signs of life. In fact, under the
stimulus of agitation, he had managed to raise himself onto one arm. Blood-
shot blue eyes gleamed wide with alarm, under the spikes of matted red hair.
"Where are ye sending me?" Turning from the door, Melton cast him a
glance of intense dislike.
   "You're the laird of Broch Tuarach, aren't you? Well, that's where I'm
sending you."
   "I dinna want to go home! I want to be shot!"
   The Englishmen exchanged a look.
   "Raving," the Lieutenant said significantly, and Melton nodded.
   "I doubt he'll live through the journey--but his death won't be on my
head, at least."
   The door shut firmly behind the Englishmen, leaving Jamie Fraser quite
alone--and still alive. "

I am dedicating my week to Valerie, our Dear Angel here at LOL. I have never met Valerie, but I can feel that she was a very special Woman, who touched many lives. Thank You Valerie for your Grace and Honor to all of Us. Oh what a Ceilidh all of our LOL'ers are having in Heaven welcoming Valerie home.

[> What a thoughtful tribute, Lisa. What a heartwrenching moment here. I love when Jamie gets to remind Hal of his "generosity" many years down the road. -- Kathy in PA, Sun, February 19 2017, 9:24:27

[> Thank you Lisa for your dedication to Valerie. I know she would be pleased. And as to the quote, Jamie is a soldier to the core. He wants to die with his men like all good, honorable leaders of battles seem to want to do. -- Marcie, Mon, February 20 2017, 8:51:36
