This dance is dedicated with ...

This dance is dedicated with permission to Miss J.C. Milligan. It illustrates her connection with the R.S.C.D.S. right from its inception (Petronella is Book 1 No. 1) up to the present. The "Rondel" my new progression, which Miss Milligan herself named, is due to appear officially this year in Book 23 in the dance "Mrs. Hamilton of Wishaw".
