Orwell Endeavors To Annoy The Scots

why you call me?I must apologize for not writing earlier to thank you for your letter & Caledonia. I liked the latter very much. It is so rare nowadays to find anyone hitting back at the Scotch cult. I am glad to see you make a point of calling them “Scotchmen,” not “Scotsmen” as they like to be called. I find this a good easy way of annoying them.

—George Orwell, letter to Anthony Powell, June 1936
