DescriptionIs busy with introduction to J. Scott Skinner's 'Harp and Claymore' which he is editing; [for MS of this see MS 2726]; will send over 'Songs of Robert Burns' when he has finished it; can find only part of report of his own lecture on Scottish song [perhaps MS 998/9/7/2]; looks forward to James Bruce Duncan's lecture at New Deer; has poor opinion of W. Christie 'Traditional Ballad Airs' borrowed from University Library; thinks New Spalding Club proposal to collect folk songs of the north east is feasible; looks for James Bruce Duncan's assistance if work is undertaken.
