John Ferguson and William Ferguson
"I have often found that Edinburgh thieves, when disturbed in their sweet security, make, like the deer, for the water, - not to swim... but as a means to get away... Somehow they think policemen don't cross waters, - loving rather to search on dry land, after the maners of the bloodhounds, which are always at fault in lochs and streams."
