This melody was claimed by Nathaniel Gow in his 1792 Collection as Mrs. Wemyss of Cuttle Hill. Above the same tune, appeared tje next year in Aderson’s 2nd Collection (albeit quite different)

Addenda - Tunes like this one, an interesting setting that supplements what is given in The Cape Breton Scottish Collection, will be added to future digital editions of that book.
