LADY BELLY [sic] ERSKINE'S MINUET. Scottish, Minuet. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). The melody appears in the (James) Gillespie Manuscript of Perth (1768, p. 73. ). The word 'Belly' in the title is perhaps 'Betty', with the 't's' uncrossed. Gillespie included another minuet in the collection entitled "Major Erskine's Minuet," so perhaps the persons of the titles were related.
