GB-Gu copy has a comment in ink '[ca.1802] Watermark'; however, Clark's Circulating Library in Peterhead didn't open until 1805 (SBTI).
Biographical info: Morison (c.1772-1848) was a Peterhead organist and fiddler. (Glen 2, xviii) Failing fortunes forced him to diversify: he also organised balls and ran a ship's chandlery. (Alburger, 89-90)
