Greetings from the Buffalo, New York area.....I am a member of the Amherst Victorian Dance Society (www.amherstvictoriandance.org) and follow this really nice website......Two years ago, when visiting the Milton, Vermont Milton Historical Society, my grand-daughter Taylor found a Ball Card from a Ball in Milton from 1876 at a hall called "The Rest" in the Checkerberry Section of Milton. On the dance card was "The Double Scotch". Thought you'd enjoy knowing that it actually was danced....Also on the dance card was The Plain Quadrille, Portland Fancy,Lancers, Tempest, Redowa Quadrille, Waltz Quadrille, Polka Quadrille, Contra, Fisher's Hornpipe, Hull's Victory, Mocking Bird Quadrille and waltz.....I tried to attach pictures of the Ball card booklet and dance list, but it wouldn't copy. If you'd like, I can email them to you using my email account. See my email address below...Mike Dowling, AVDS President
