Moffat, John, [note] if we may give credit to an addendum in the Bannatyne
MS., [note] was the author of one of the very best of our old Scottish ballads, “The Wife of Auchtermuchty;” but this addendum is in “a more modern hand” than that in which
the poem itself is written. In Lord Hailes's [note]
Collection there is a piece entitled “ “To remember the End,” his claim to
which is undisputed; but it is of little merit.
