t it has to do anything with these matters, but because I happen to think of it here, that the tune of Scots wha hae is, according to tradition, the original one of Hey tutti Taiti, to which the Scots did actually march to the field of Bannockburn. Shoemaker amazed at the N. Y. [New York] shoes. Evening at Mrs. Crowe's. S. B. [Samuel Brown.] D. S. [David Scott.] Mr. De Quincey. Pleasant flow of talk, but the Opium Eater did not get into his gorgeous style. Good story told by S. B. about Burns. Write it out for Tribune and quote the pertinent verse.
