This is a jig made from the tune of 'God Save the King'. There is a single bassline in the first strain, with chords followed by octaves in the second. One of the tunes, 'The Wooden Walls or all hands at Work', is by Mr Reinagle: in a slow 6/8.

RISM:

Biographical info: Niel Gow (1727-1807), father of the famous Gow family, lived in Inver near Dunkeld. (Glen 2, viii-xiv; Grove; Alburger; Murdoch, 41-48) Gow's fourth son Nathaniel (1763-1831), violinist and Edinburgh publisher, was perhaps the most famous of the siblings; but his brothers William, John and Andrew also traded in music (John and Andrew in London). Nathaniel's son, Niel Junr., lived 1795-1823.
