The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 14 "Geneva". Copyright (c) 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   " "Daddy," said Isobel, tugging on her father's sleeve. "There's a huge man
in the hall! He watched us all the time we were coming down the stairs! He's
scary-looking!"
   "Who is he, Daddy?" Geneva asked. She was more reserved than her
sister, but clearly also interested.
   "Er . . . why, that must be the new groom John's brought us," Lord
Dunsany said, obviously flustered. "I'll have one of the footmen take
him--" The baronet was interrupted by the sudden appearance of a footman
in the doorway.
   "Sir," he said, looking shocked at the news he bore, "there is a Scotchman
in the hall!" Lest this outrageous statement not be believed, he turned and
gestured widely at the tall, silent figure standing cloaked behind him.
   At this cue, the stranger took a step forward, and spotting Lord Dunsany,
politely inclined his head.
   "My name is Alex Mackenzie," he said, in a soft Highland accent. He
bowed toward Lord Dunsany, with no hint of mockery in is manner. "Your
servant, my lord." "
