Epigraph
Dedication
To Katharine De Mattos
It's ill to loose the bands that God decreed to bind;
Still will we be the children of the heather and the wind,
Far away from home, O it's still for you and me
That the broom is blowing bonnie in the north countrie.


The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
To my wife
I saw rain falling and the rainbow drawn
On Lammermuir. Hearkening I heard again
In my precipitous city beaten bells
Winnow the keen sea wind. And here afar,
Intent on my own race and place, I wrote.
Take thou the writing: thine it is. For who
Burnished the sword, blew on the drowsy coal,
Held still the target higher, chary of praise
And prodigal of counsel - who but thou?
So now, in the end, if this the least be good,
If any deed be done, if any fire
Burn in the imperfect page, the praise be thine.


Weir of Hermiston
First words
Mr Utterson the lawyer was the man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary and yet somehow lovable.

Jekyll & Hyde
The Lord-Justice Clerk was a stranger in that part of the country; but his lady wife was known there from a child, as her race had been before her.

Disambiguation notice
This work is an omnibus containing both THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE and WEIR OF HERMISTON. It should not be combined with either individual work. Thank you.
