PINKELL'S. AKA and see "Ed Kellogg's Quickstep," "Kellogg's Quickstep." American (?), Strathspey or Highland Schottische. B Minor/D Major (Harding): B Flat Major (Howe). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune's provenance is unknown, however, it appears in several American publications, beginning with William William's A New and Complete Preceptor for the Fife, a revised edition of which was published in Utica, New York, in 1826. It seems likely that Boston publisher Elias Howe (1820–1895) obtained the tune from Williams' volume. "Kellogg's Quickstep" is a American Civil War-era adaptation of Williams' tune.
