Contributors - Rev. William Matheson
Reporters - Gillian Johnstone; Agnes MacDonald

Summary - A woman's song of regret. She was beguiled and deceived by a handsome young man, who told her he had a castle and an estate in Ireland, but when she eloped with him it was only to find that he had nothing, and they had to stay with her sister-in-law. She now greatly regrets her actions and hopes her father will accept her back. She is willing to do the lowliest of menial work if he should accept her.
