Scope and Contents

Song entitled 'Laoi Nan Ceann' collected from Donul Mac an tShaoir [Donald MacIntyre, catechist, Àird/Aird, Beinn na Faoghla/Benbecula] at Aird Choinnich [Àird Choinnich/Ardkenneth, Uibhist a Deas/South Uist]. The song is composed of sixty one lines and is preceded by a lengthy narrative. A note written transversely across some of the text reads 'Copy of this and of the "Lay" sent to the Rev Mr Clerk Killmallie Oct[ober] 11 1867.' Another note refers Carmichael to look at 'Torrac Na Taine' recited by 'Padra Moriestan' [Peter Morrison].
