Martin of Bullions
(St.). The St. Swithin of Scotland. His day is July 4, and the Scotch say, if it rains then, rain may be expected for forty days.
“`By St. Martin of Bullion-' `And what hast thou to do with St.
Martin?' `Nay, little enough, sir, unless when he sends such rainy days
that we cannot fly a hawk.” —
