Lady Catherine Bruce's Reel (not jig) Urgent help (2 C = jig / 3C = reel)

The two-couple dance is the jig. According to DanceData, the reel, Lady
C. Bruce's Reel by name, from MMM1, is a three-couple dance.

I have been asked to play the above REEL for a class on Wednesday night. I

can find no reference to a reel of that name only a jig. The dance tutor
says there is a reel of that name as well as the jig. Does anyone know
what
the set tune should be.
