Scottish Coat

John Mackay, of Didril, having put on a new suit of clothes, was told by a Scottish Seer that he did see the gallows upon his coat, which he never noticed; but some time after gave his coat to his servant, William Forbes, to whose honesty there could be nothing said at the time, but he was shortly after hanged for theft, with the same coat about him, my informer being an eye-witness of his execution and one who had heard what the Seer said before. George, Lord Reay. Scottish Folklore.
