Happy Birthday!

Arthur Conan Doyle

b5/22/1859
(d7/7/1930)

        Oh Sherlock Holmes is deid land syne
        In some forgotten garret.
        But that's good luck, for Holmes would boke   [puke]
        If he heard the name o' Barrett.

                "Superintendant Barrett" from the singing of Ewan MacColl on
                Bad Lads and Hard Cases, Riverside LP, 1957.

The Stone of Scone, used to crown Scottish kings, was "removed" from Scotland to London
by the English in 1296. It was "removed" from Westminister Abbey by persons unknown
in 1951. There was considerable investigation led by Scotland Yard Superintendant Barrett but
the results were felt inconclusive. Seems they thought they found it but then a whole bunch of
identical counterfeit stones appeared. (Some stone was returned to Scotland in 1996.)

So if you should come on a stane wi a ring,

Just sit yourself down and proclaim yourself king.

-- "Wee Magic Stane" (I think it's in the _Rebels Ceilidh Song Book_, but I've lost my copy)

Maybe it's in 101 Scottish Songs.

I'm in Raleigh for the next couple of days so I can't check. Most sadly, I was at Duke this morning but there's no time at all to go play in their "American Sheet Music" collection.
