Mr Alexander W. Macphail's Edinburgh Cata- logue XCX. (we are uncertain as to the number intended) contains much of interest relating to Burns and Scott. There is an original Mb. of Burns. Johnson of 'The Scots Musical Museum sent Burns a sheet of music to be used by the poet for a song with the title "One night I dream id I Hay most easy." Burns drew his pen through this, and wrote in its place the first line of his own song "Idream'd I lay where flowers were springing. The size of the document is 9iin. by 6 in., and the T)rice 101.
