X:1 T:Grand Duke Nicholas's Waltz, The M:3/4 L:1/8 R:Waltz B:”Melodist: A Collection of music in two volumes" (1826-1859, No. 111, p. 62) 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.
