One day Lord Brodie's daughter, who had married Dunbar, younger of Grangehill, brought her little son Robert with her to call for his grandfather at Brodie Castle. Dunbar of Grangehill had by this time received the honour of Knighthood from Charles II., and of course was not in sympathy with Lord Brodie's views on Church and State, but there had been no interruption in their social intercourse, though Lord Brodie thought there was too- much love of gaiety and worldly display at Grangehill. Dressed in his best suit, the boy made a favourable impression on his
worthy grandfather's heart, and all went well until Lord Brodie discovered that his grandson had never learnt the Shorter Catechism ! It was even a little worse than that, for he had never been taught to read. He was barely ten years of age at the time, however. His mother received a very severe reproof, and little Robert Dunbar went home very crestfallen on finding, that in the opinion of his grandfather there were somethings in which he was not altogether perfect.
