Scottish Saying

During the first two visitations of Cholera, there were no cases in Pittenweem, though the disease was in the neighbouring towns of St. Monans and Anstruther. On another outbreak, the only case was that of a man was taken ill at St Andrews, and came home to Pittenweem, and died there.

Pittenweem may sink with sin;
But neither sword or pestilence
Shall enter therein.
