258              THE GOLD OF FAIRNILEE.
And there's the other auld rhyme—
' Between the Camp o' Rink And Tweed water clear, Lie nine kings' ransoms For nine hundred year ! ' "
Randal and Jean were very glad to hear so much gold was near them as would pay nine kings' ransoms. They took their small spades and dug little holes in the Camp of Rink, which is a great old circle of stonework, surrounded by a deep ditch, on the top of a hill above the house. But Jean was not a very good digger, and even Randal grew tired. They thought they would wait till they grew bigger, and then find the gold.
