LIFE OF MAN [2]. AKA and see "Hopetoun House," "Sweet Mally," "Sweet Molly (1)" "Youngest Daughter (1) (The)." Scottish, Reel. E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody, which has a Scottish provenance, appears under this title in William Vickers' 1770 Northumbrian music manuscript [1]. Unfortunately, almost nothing is known about Vickers. There are many variants in both Scotland and Ireland (see notes for "Youngest Daughter (1) (The)" and "Hopetoun House").
