    Re: Braes of Tulliemet. Was Harvest Social, Oct. 27

    My copy of 101 (reprinted January 1957) has:
    13 - 16  First couple lead up the middle to the top of the set, then cast
    off one place
    on their own sides of the dance and cross over to face 1st corners.
    This has to be an error, since they started this on opposite sides and are
    not told to cross over at the top. And it would be a long way to go if they
    did.
