It was our intention to keep it exclusively for our own papers but Well give it to you on condition that you do not communicate it to any one.

A but the thing is exclusive and we count upon it that you will not sell it to Auy paper beside your a a a on no account a asserted Snook who presently started off for the Western Union Telegraph office.

A song altogether of Fife origin and authorship Marks the commencement of the period of modern ballads. It will be acknowledged that a Sauk Globin Gray has few superiors either among its predecessors or successor though to Callic the a King of Scot Tosh ballads a As Chambers does is to raise it to a dangerous Eminence which it would not be prudent even for the most patriotic native of the a a kingdom to claim for it. For our present purpose it is More to the Point to observe its modern character Aud sentiment. This cannot be better shown than by an extract from the letter lady Anne Barnard wrote in 1823 to the a Waverley a who had referred in the a a pirates to a Jeannie Gray the Village heroine in lady Anne Lindsay a Beautiful Ballad a Robin Gray a lady Anne then an old lady writes a so called from its being the name of the Obi Herdsman of Balcarres was born soon after the close of the year 1771.

There was an ancient scotch Melody of which i was passionately fond. Sophy Johnstone used to sing it to us at Balcarres i longed to hear old Sophy a air to its plaintive True some Butle history of virtuous distress in Humble life which might suit it. While attempting this in my closet i called to my Little sister now lady hard Wicks a i have been writing a Ballad my dear. I am oppressing my heroine with Many misfortunes. I have already sent her Jamie to sea and broken her fathers Arm Aud made her Mother fall sick and Given her Auld Robin Gray for a Lover but i wish to Load her with a fifth sorrow in the four lines poor thing help me to one i a steal the cow sister Anne a said the Little Elizabeth. The cow was immediately lifted by me and the song completed. At our fireside among our neighbors a Auld Robin Gray a was always called for. I was pleased with the approbation it met with.
