§ 30. Thomas Mounsey Cunningham

Thomas Mounsey Cunningham, an elder brother of Allan, is now best known by his Hills o’ Gallowa, which, when it appeared anonymously, was attributed to Burns, but only echoes some of his mannerisms. In 1797, Cunningham’s Hairst Kirn (harvest home) appeared in Brash and Reid’s Poetry Ancient and Select, and he contributed to Hogg’s Forest Minstrel, The Scots Magazine and The Edinburgh Magazine.
