Words of Advice
The old Beadle had held office for the best part
of a lifetime. As he lay on his deathbed he summoned his son to leave him
some words of advice.
"Listen ti yir auld faither, John" he said
"A hae been beadle here fir fowertie yeir an mair an A hae been thinkin that
thai micht mak ye ma successor. Weill, ma son, A hae juist ane bittie o
advice fir ti gie ye."
After a long pause he finished with impassioned
gravity " John, nevvir forget this - Resist aw impruivements."
