English citations of shealing

  • 1843, Thomas Carlyle, Past and Present, book 4, chapter V, Permanence
    The herdsman in his poor clay shealing, where his very cow and dog are friends to him, and not a cataract but carries memories for him, and not a mountain-top but nods old recognition: his life, all encircled as in blessed mother’s-arms, is it poorer than Slick’s with the ass-loads of yellow metal on his back? Unhappy Slick!
