The outside has a portion of a poem by Burns on one side, and the declaration on the other that it is "Warranted part of the barnroof of Mossgiel while occupied by Burns." There is a pencil which, when removed, opens to green satin and a felt in which to place needles. This piece is in great condition, and is circa 1850. It easures 3 and 1/4 inches long, and 2 and 1/4 inches wide.
