CHAPTER XVII "RUNES OF THE SOBBOW OF WOMEN" Green Fire During the most active years of the Fiona Maeleod writings, the author was usually in a highly wrought condition of mental and emotional tension, which produced great restlessness, so that he could not long remain contentedly anywhere. We spent the summer of 1896 moving about from one place to another that had special interest for him. First we went to Bamborough, for seabathing (he was a fine swimmer), and to visit the little Holy Isle of the Eastern Shores, Lindisfarne, Iona's daughter. Thence to the Clyde to be near his mother and sisters. From Inverness we went to the Falls of Lora, in Ossian's country, and later we moved to one of William's favourite haunts, Loch Tarbert, off Loch Fyne, where our friends Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rinder had taken a house for the summer. There I left him with his secretary-sister, Mary, and returned to London to recommence my work on The Glasgow Herald. The two following letters to me told of the progress of his work: September 23d. I am now well in writing trim I am glad to say. Two days ago I wrote the long-awaited " Rune of the Passion of Woman " the companion piece in a sense to the ' Chant of Woman' in Pharais--and have also done the Savoy story "The Archer" (about 4,500 words) and all but done "Ahez the Pale." Today I hope to get on with the "Lily Leven." . . . I must make the most of this day of storm for writing. I had a splendid long sleep last night, and feel 'spiff.' . . . I am not built for mixed companies, and like them less and less in proportion as the imperative need of F. M. and W. S. for greater isolation grows. I realise more and more the literal truth of what George Meredith told me--that renunciation of ordinary social pleasures...
