Re: Major L Stewart’s

Composed by Scots fiddler William Marshall and published in his first collection of 1822. The full title in that book is "Major L Stewart’s Reel - of the Island of Java", and there are a few more tunes dedicated to that person and his family. Major Ludovic Stewart (1782-1848) was a member of the Pittyvaich Stewarts, who were close friends of Marshall.
