[Quotation - Continued]
"place of security least it should fall into the hands of the English. But Lo! while Robert was addressing his prayers to the empty casket it was observed to open and shut suddenly and on inspection the saint was found to have himself deposited his arm in the shrine as an assurance of victory. Such is the tale of Lesly. But the Bruce little needed that the arm of St. Fillan should assist his own. " Minstrelcy of the Border Vol. II [Two] - The belief of the power of St. Fillan in the cure of Lunacy is far from being eradicated in the northern part of the Kingdom and the magical operations by which his aid is supposed to be procured are still performed at his chapel and pool in Strathfillan in Breadalbane"
