The Ghost of Benjamin Binns

This ballad begins: ‘Keep your seat if you please, and don’t be afraid, / I am only a ghost, a poor harmless shade; / I would not hurt any one here if I could, / And you couldn’t do me much harm if you would’. A note under the title informed readers that this popular song could be purchased from the Poet’s Box, Overgate, Dundee. It was printed by W. Shepherd. for more click here
