Abstract

The tools of the workmen struck upon a very large stone; on raising it, it was found to be part of the lid of a stone coffin, within which a skeleton was seen. Old Francis Duncan, who was superintending the work, came immediately to inform me of the discovery, and I took no time in proceeding to the spot.
