A Chairist́ona,

'S ann nẹnach a tha e, ceart gu lẹir. Tha mi creidsinn gu bheil iad fo eagal
roimhe 'n upraid a bhiodh ann nan do leig iad air iasad gu saor iad....gun
tigeadh daoine nan ceudan an leughadh!
'S ḍcha gun tuiteadh an urlar fodha le cudthrom do dhaoine a bhiodh air........

Is weird that is it, right enough. Am I believing thatt are they under fear
before the uproar that would-be there if did let they on loan freely them...
that would-come people in-their hundreds them reading! Perhaps thhat would-fall
the floor under with weight of the people that would-be on-him....

It' weird right enough. I believe they're afraid of the uproar that they'd have
if they loaned them out freely... that people would come by the hundreds to read
them! Perhaps the floor would fall through with the weight of  the  people......

Càit' a bheil a' ghrian an diugh? An d' fhàg thu anns an leabhar-lann i a

reading books? ;D

Le meas,
Aonghas
