The Linen Cap (reel)

The Honorable Mrs. Moll’s
A version of this tune, in D, was recorded by the Scottish band Ossian, called The Honorable Mrs. Moll’s:

The tune appears by this name in the Athole Collection, but in A, if I remember rightly.
The following setting of The Linen Cap appears in O’Neills:
