Verses on the Report of the Morbus entering Glasgow


This verses begins: ‘[ ]t the times are dull and dreary, / [ ]ry thing goes topsey teary, / [ ] travelling night and day I’m weary, / Through the streets of Glasgow’. ‘Morbus’ is Latin for ‘sickness’ or ‘disease’. No publication details have been included on this sheet, and, unfortunately, the top left-hand corner is missing. (although concerning Glasgow this exactly reflects conditions in Leith at the same time). for more click here
