Excerpt from The Merry Muses of Caledonia: A Collection of Favourite Scots Songs Ancient and Modern; Selected for Use of the Crochallan Fencibles

Thomson himself (sept, falls into the error of supposing that the free-spoken ditty, The other night with all her charms, was an original production, for he wrote upon the margin the words, Unpublishable surely, though the truth is that Burns quoted it from the d'urfey collection. A more mischievous sort of evidence is that which is based on the contents of certain old publications, upon which the flight of time has conferred that arbitrary authority usually associated in the popular mind with gude black prent. It is one of these Whose contents and title-page we have repro duced, and which may be said to embrace the whole subject, that We propose to examine in the light of the information we have been enabled to collect. A short time before Burns's introduction to Edinburgh society, William Smellie, Lord Newton, Charles Hay, and a few more wits of the Parliament House, had founded a convivial club called The Crochallan F encibles (a mock allusion to the Buonaparte Volunteer movement), which met in a tavern kept by a genial old Highlandman named Daunie Douglas, Whose favourite song, Cro Chalien, suggested the dual designation of the Club. Smellie introduced Burns as a member in January, 1787. Cleghorn also appears to have been on the muster-roll of this rbllicking regitnent, which supplies a key to much of Burns's correspondence with him. How the revelry of the boon companions was stimulated and diversified may be easily imagined.(ix)

About the Author:

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Robert Burns was born into a farming family in Alloway in Ayrshire in 1759. He died in Dumfries at the early age of 37. Yet in that short time he had taken the Scottish literary world by storm, and had secured for himself a place in history and legend. Burns only published four collections during his lifetime.
