NOTES [86 words]: Murdoch-Lawrence: .".. here is a parody [of "Cauld Kail in Aberdeen"] which I discovered in the 'Aberdeen Journal,' November 15, 1815, which, according to that paper, was described as new words to 'The Cogie,' sung on 4th November, 1815." Murdoch-Lawrance is also Greig's correspondent but Greig only quotes Murdoch-Lawrance's first verse. Perhaps the tune is from "Cauld Kail in Aberdeen" but I don't see anything in this text to suggest it derives from that song. For references see "Cauld Kale in Aberdeen (I)." - BS
