Scope and content:
Volume, ca. 1875, of manuscript fiddle[?] tunes with variations. Outer leaves blank, the remainder hand-ruled with four staves per page. Approximately 19 pp. of music including eight tunes: Fleuve du tage with variations ; variations to Bounding Billows; variations to Swiss Boy; variations to Yankee Doodle; the Devil among the Tailors with variations; variations to "My lodging is on the cold ground"; "Oh Whistle and I'll Come to you my lad" (with lyrics); and Rory O'More (title in pencil, possibly in another hand). Also one page of music without text for soprano and alto; 2 pp. unidentified music in four-part harmony without text; and a setting of "Onward Christian Soldiers" with four verses, in four-part harmony.
