Happy Thanksgiving

Some quotes for your Thanksgiving Day:

"Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off'rings, and a thankful strain."

And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit."
