A Paisley printed chapbook, in original state, comprised of three popular late Georgian songs, partially composed in Scots dialect, and including an amusing nine verse ballad celebrating the benefits, and indeed detriments, of drinking whiskey: 'Whiskey secrets ne'er can keep, / Whiskey aften tells the truth, / Whiskey is a friend o'sleep, / Whiskey maks a grey hair'd youth'.
