Robert Burns The Gauger

When Robert Bums was a “gauger” in Dumfries, information had been lodged at the excise office against a woman who kept a small public-house in Thornhill. Next day, fair day, was fixed for the officers to visit it; the
house was crowded; Burns came suddenly to the back door, and said to the laodlady:

“Kate, woman, are you mad ?, the supervisor and me will be on you in half an-hour,” and disappeared. There was
not much liquor seized when the visit was made.
