Waterloo, X:2

This is the Waterloo hornpipe first published c1820-29 in vol.1 of Davie’s Caledonian repository of the most favorite Scottish slow airs, marches, strathspeys, reels, jigs, hornpipes, &c. &c. &c. Expressly adapted for the violin.

I’ve included the bowing indications given, and assumed they were to be repeated in a similar fashion in the following bars.
