San earrann chlaistinneach seo tha a' Bh-ph. Seònaid NicIlleathain à Inbhir Theòrsa a' leughadh sgeulachd èibhinn a' bhaile, a bha roimhe ann am bileag air a dhèanamh 's air a reic le Iain Swanson, peantair is sgeadaiche, air sgàth an RNLI.

'When a certain local painter had completed his job of renovating a scriptural frieze at a church not a hundred miles from Thurso, he sent in his bill, made out in a lump sum for his work. The deacons' court refused to pay the bill unless it was made out in detailed form, so the painter made it out as follows:

Detailed Bill:

For correcting the Ten Commandments, embellishing Pontius Pilate and putting new ribbons in his hat - £1 3s 4d

For putting tail on the rooster of Saint Peter and mending his comb - 6s 8d

Repluming and gilding left wing of guardian angel - 3s 4d

Washing the high priest's servant maid - gratis

Renewing heaven, adjusting the stars and cleaning up the moon - 13s 4d

Brightening up the flames of hell, putting a new tail on the devil, mending his hoof and doing several odd jobs for the lost - £2

Touching up purgatory and restoring lost souls - 16s 8d

Mending the shirt of the prodigal son - 3s 4d
