We're having trouble reconciling different descriptions of bars 9-16 of Lady
Susan Stewart's Reel (Book 5 #9). The cribs we consulted, plus Pilling's
green book (5th and 7th ed's), show this as set to corners & partner
(hello-goodbye setting), however the instructions from the compact version
of Book 5 state the following:

9 - 12 1S set to first corners, then turn corners by the right hand
(in four bars) to finish on the sidelines. 1S set to
partner across the dance on last two bars.
13 - 16 1S set to second corners, then turn corners by the right hand
(in four bars) to finish 1L between the 3S, 1M between the 2S
facing up and down the dance. 1S set to partner up and down
the dance on last two bars.

Is this an error? It seems that the description above is impossible to do
in 8 bars. I've never danced this but it's on the program of the SF
Branch's upcoming Jean Patrick Memorial Dance. A search of the Strathspey
archives revealed that several posters include it on their list of favorite
dances so I'm hoping someone can enlighten me! -Steve
