No full copy of this poem is available.

A short twelve-line newspaper poem, in Scots, urging peace and brotherhood between all Scots as they fight for 'True worth the true Reform.' The pseudonymous author, M. P. A. of Kilmarnock, may well be Marion Paul Aird, a fairly well-known Ayrshire poet of the period, though this cannot be proven.
