X:1 T:Cease your funning [1] M:6/8 L:1/8 R:Jig B:”Melodist: A Collection of music in two volumes" (1826-1859, No. 106, p. 58) N:The melodist is a musician's ms., probably by a fiddler, that contains both N:tunes and songs from a variety of sources, American and European. The N:inscription on the inside cover reads, "This is from the Bridge family of N:Augusta, Maine (Horatio Bridge, friend of Hawthorne's)". However, entries in N:the ms. were in different hands indicating several contributors. N:The ms. is neat and the notation studied and precise. N:The tune was probably copied from "Riley's Flute Melodies" (New York) F: https://archive.org/details/Melodist/page/n59/mode/2up?view=theater Z:AK/Fiddler’s Companion K:C c2g (e<c)z|f2d (B<G)z|e2c (A<F)z|dGB c2z:| c2c' (c'<g)z|c2a (a<f)z|B2g gcB|Ag^f !fermata!g3| {=fed}c2g (e<c)z|f2d B<Gz|e2c AFA|dGB c2z||
