Mary

,

of Robert Burns. (See Highland Mary.)

⁂ It may be added to what is said under Highland Mary that of Mary Morison the poet wrote:—

“Those smiles and glances let me see.

That make the miser’s treasure poor.”

And in Highland Mary we have—


Still oʹer those scenes my memʹry wakes,

And fondly broods with miser’s care.”

A statue to her has been recently erected in Edinburgh.
