Ten martyrs awaited execution in Edinburgh. One of the guards, off duty, dreamt the night before that an angel came with ten crowns and fitted a crown on their heads but the tenth crown would not fit the tenth martyr, and it was tried on the head of the guard and found to fit exactly. The dream impressed him greatly, and the following morning the ten condemned men were offered freedom if they would recant. Nine refused to do so, but one recanted and the guard, observing this, rebuked him, saying, ‘Are you to deny your master at the last minute?’ This so enraged the authorities that they placed the guard among the nine, and he went, making a confession of his faith to death with the others. (Told by Rev. J. S. Sinclair).
