Today's Stichomancy for William Shakespeare

The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from The Black Dwarf by Walter Scott:

which superstition has attired it in the more vulgar traditions.

[The Black Dwarf, now almost forgotten, was once held a formidable personage by the dalesmen of the Border, where he got the blame of whatever mischief befell the sheep or cattle.

pages 501-509, and to the "Postscript" of the book. I hope to be able at some later day to express them in more explicit form.

To some readers I may consequently seem, before they get beyond the middle of the book, to offer a caricature of the subject. Such convulsions of piety, they will say, are not sane. If, however, they will have the patience to read to the end, I believe that this unfavorable impression will disappear;
