CHAPEL OF OUR LADY OF LORETTO and HERMITAGE (Remains of) [continued from page 32] to perform a miracle, therefore thou, and they, are deceivers, tell me truly have you been born or ever have been blind, or with this sword, I will presently put you to death," trembling and astonished, the poor man cried, O, Sir spare my life, and I will tell you the truth, and thereby make Known there Knavery, "When I was a young lad, I was a herd and Kept the Sisters of the Sciennes sheep, and in my pastime, I used to flip the lids of my eyes, so that any body would have thought I was blind, the sisters saw me do it, (and laughed) after which the Kirkmen came from Edinbro' [Edinburgh] to see me, and caused me to play the same pavie turning My Eye lids and white of My Eyes up, They then ordered the Nuns to get another lad to Keep their Sheep, and to confine me in one of their vaults, and so sir I was Kept and fed in one of their vaults, for the space of seven years.
