X:1 T:Wildgoose Chase [2] M:2/4 L:1/8 R:Reel B:”Melodist: A Collection of music in two volumes" (1826-1859) 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.
