Subject: QOTD for November 9, 2023

The following quotation is from Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2022 All Rights Reserved. Chapter 109 De Profundis


If the captain believed his son’s word - and very plainly he did - then he must conclude that he was essentially immortal for the intervening years. Five years now.

“Holy Lord,” I said, finding a more acceptable interjection. There was an inch of buttermilk left in my cup, and I tossed it back as though it were bad whisky.

“That - I mean . . . it doesn't mean that he will kill your husband,” Elspeth said, leaning forward anxiously. “Only that your husband will not kill him.”

“That must be a great comfort to you.”

She flushed, embarrassed. Of course it was. She cleared her throat and tried to offer comfort, saying that Charles didn’t mean to kill Jamie, ony to take him prisoner, and . . .

“And take him off to Patrick Ferguson to be hanged,” I finished, nastily. “For the sake of his own bloody advancement!”
