It was performed with peculiar tatste by Major Logan, whose set of it the editor was at pains to acquire, but scarcely differing from a song to the same air, sung by the editor's father, composed by Mrs. Fraser of Belladrum, expressing her regret at his continuing too long a bachelor, and intimating, that if he waited till she became a widow, she would by at his service" (Fraser). Balquhidder is a town in Stirling, Scotland, the site of Rob Roy's grave.
