The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Letters of Robert Louis Stevenson by Robert Louis Stevenson:|
and a Celt. I know not about England; in Scotland at least, where
Gaelic was spoken in Fife little over the century ago, and in
Galloway not much earlier, I deny that there exists such a thing as
a pure Saxon, and I think it more than questionable if there be
such a thing as a pure Celt.
But what have you to do with this? and what have I? Let us
continue to inscribe our little bits of tales, and let the heathen
rage! Yours, with sincere interest in your career,
ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON.
Letter: TO WILLIAM MORRIS
VAILIMA, SAMOA, FEB. 1892.
