REEL [83]. The first strain of this untitled reel fromBook 2 of the large c. 1883 music manuscript collection of County Leitrim fiddler and piper Stephen Grier (c. 1824-1894) is shared with "Marquis of Huntly's Reel (3)." The second strains, however, are not related. Both strains are related to "Marquis of Huntly's Highland Fling (2)," albeit the second strain is more distanced.
