Thanks Folkiedave.

We've now trounced our target in just over two days, in an amazing feat of folkie community action, so if I could just reiterate we are aiming to raise more funds to secure the papers themselves in the long term, working in partnership with a suitable national repository.

We've had great support from a few Mudcatters so far; please spread the word as much as you can.

If it's not against the rules, perhaps a suitable way to keep this up top is for folk to share their favourite (printable!) stories about Hamish, or lyrics from his songs or poems?

I always loved the sentiment of the Gillie Mor -

Ane's the wish yokes us thegither—
Ane's the darg that lies afore.
You an' me: the man, the brither!
Me an' you: the Gillie Mor.

Many thanks!
