Duns, Berwickshire, Scotland.
Dear Sir, this is a kind momento

Written by a brither Scott,
Which he has composed and sent you

That he near may be forgot.

A lang farewell unto you, Johnnie,
My ain true-hearted usefu Cronnie,
Still may your way be straight and bonnie

An always free.
An my Gude blessing light upon ye

Though o'er the sea.

Lang hae we been twa comrades dear,
But now maun part for lang I fear
Which makes true friendship's panting tear

Start to mine eye,
While yo in midst of life's carrier

Maun o're the sea.

Weel, since ye will nae langer stay,
What wade ye have me mair to say
Than wish you weel when far away.

And may you thrive
In Saul and Body every day

While ye're alive.

An when yo cross the raging Ocean,
I will you mind in my Devotion,
And plead your cause wi' great emotion

'Till yo arrive
Like Israel in the land of Goshen,

Like them to thrive,
