Description
Preface: I WAS led in early life to admire the writings of Miss Blamire, and the first task I imposed on myself to perform was to collect them. Being born in India, and my father belonging to the Indian Army, the imagery and sentiment contained in ?The Nabob,? perpetually occupied my mind as I brooded over the fond hope of his revisiting his native land; in this I was doomed to disappointment; not so however in the eventual accomplishment of my early research, though that was long deferred. Many years passed away, and I found myself in possession of only the three lyrics by which she is so generally known, ?The Nabob,? ?What ails this heart o? mine,? and ?The Chelsea Pensioners.? The next thing which fell in my way, was what may be entitled ?The Carrier Pigeon,? commencing thus: ?Why tarries my love ? Ah ! where does he rove ? My love is long absent from me.? This little lyric, which will be found in the Appendix, I copied from ?The Mason?s Magazine,? if my memory serves me rightly, for I have no note of the exact title of the work, nor of the year in which it was published; it is there said however to be by Miss Blamire. A considerable while afterwards I found it in the ?Scots Magazine? for 1805, p. 336 , where it is attributed to Lady Anne Lindsay, the celebrated author of ?Auld Robin Gray;? but I cannot help thinking Miss Blamire has a superior claim to it.
