AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Air.

Aldin, Christmas Eve Waits, 1908


I had scarcely got into bed when a strain of music seemed to break forth in the air just below the window. I listened, and found it proceeded from a band, which I concluded to be the waits from some neighbouring village. They went round the house, playing under the windows.
