Item Description Manuscript, in Gavin Greig's hand, of the second tune on page 59 of Skinner's Harp and Claymore Collection. Note how simple the accompaniment is. The numbers 4, 5, and 6, at the end of each double stave, remind the printers that there are 3 staves above (for the music of 'Whistle O'er the Lave O't').
