Broadside ballad entitled 'The Mound's Appeal'
THE MOUND'S APPEAL.
SCOTCHMEN ! in Auld reekie born,
Think of me - your father's pride -
For three score years my body grew,
O ! surely you'll be mov'd in time
Three useful roads can I uphold,
" The Mound's our own, and so 's the cash
" Shall Scotland's thistle be put down,
" It cannot - must not - shall not be !
Probable date of publication:
