Item Description The note, which is taped to the strathspey Lady Mary Primrose, reads: 'Lady Mary Primrose. This beautiful strain was composed by William Marshall & appeared in his collection as 'Invereshie'. We find it appears also in Nath Gow's coll: with the Strains reversed & altered little. Peter Milne did much to bring this exquisite morsel to the front, & welcome honesty and patriotism in sifting out all the corn from the chaff, deserves more than a passing notice.'
