purchases Ellangowan estate, and is found by Counsellor Pleydell to be implicated in carrying off Henry Bertrand, the heir of the estate. Both Glossin and Dirk Hatteraick, his accomplice, are sent to prison, and in the night the lawyer contrives to enter the smuggler’s cell, when a quarrel ensues, in which Hatteraick strangles him, and then hangs himself.” (Sir W. Scott: Guy Mannering.)
