There was no possibility that the horse could have traversed that distance in the time Haig was passing through the "cemetery;" neither was there any place on ...

The granite of those countries, owing to the position of the thin laminae of black mica, sometimes resembles graphic granite; but most frequently (and this determines the age of its formation) it passes into a real gneiss.
