Misc. Comments

Title-page note:

To the Public.
The Author of the following Sheets, now humbly submitted by him to the Public, thinks it necessary to mention, that several of his Strathspeys & Reels, have occasionally been Published by most of the Collectors of Scottish Music, without his Permission: of this however, he does not much Complain, especially, as he had not till now, any intention to Publish them himself: His only Complaint is their not mentioning his Name along with those Reels of his Composition they Published, which for obvious reasons, were by some neglected, but in particular, their changing the original names given by him, to other names, according to their own fancy; and this being not generally known, the Author has thought it necessary to apprize the Public of it, assuring them, that this Work is entirely his own Composition, & cannot be claimed by any other Person Whatever.
