Bonaparts Expedition

My abc is transcribed from "A Favorite Collection of Tunes with Variations Adapted for the Northumberland Smallpipes, Violin or Flute" (by John Peacock and Thomas Wright, printed in Newcastle, England by W.Wright, 1805).

With regard to the spelling: "Bonapart", I’ve posted "Bonaparte’s Expedition" as an alternative title.

Although I feel that the first pair of quavers in bar 5 of the second part should be swung, I’ve transcribed the tune as per the original.
