Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ...I agree with th' old prig to a hair, For a big-belly'd bottle's a heav'n of a care. A STANZA ADDED IN A MASON LODGE. Then fill up a bumper, and make it o'erflow, And honours masonic prepare for to throw; May every true brother of the compass and square Have a big-belly'd bottle when harass'd with care. THE AUTHOR'S FAREWELL TO H1S NATIVE COUNTRY. Tune--'roslin Castle.'

Farewell, old Coila's hills and dales, Her heathy moors and winding vales; The scenes where wretched fancy roves, Pursuing past, unhappy loves Farewell, my friends Farewell, my foes My peace with these, my love with those---The bursting tears my heart declare, Farewell, the bonie banks of Ayr THE FAREWELL. TO THE BRETHREN OF ST. JAMES'S LODGE, TARBOLTON. TUNE--'GUID NIGHT, AND JOY BE WI YOU A' ' Adieu a heart-warm, fond adieu Dear brothers of the mystic tie Ye favour'd, ye enlighten'd few, Companions of my social joy Tho' I to foreign lands...
