Interpretation
  • Sir John Graeme fell in love with Barbara Allan but he had found out he was dying. So he sent one of his fellow friends to speak to her and bring her to John. As she walked in to see him, she had gotten upset because he did not toast to her when he toasted to everyone else at one of his dinners. Before he had died, he said fare well to everyone and told them to be kind to Barbara. She could not live without him, so she made a decision to die so she could be with him for eternity.
