The next carving entitled 'The Chieftain' is obviously taken from Burns' immortal poem 'Address To A Haggis'

"Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,

great chieftain o' the puddin-race,"

"Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware

That jaups in luggies;

But, if ye wish her gratefu' prayer,

Gie her a Haggis!"
