GUEST,SteveG Child Ballads: US Versions (165* d) RE: Child Ballads: US Versions 06 Feb 12

Personally I'm very suspicious of all versions of Twa Magicians, and I'm glad to see you are putting Hares on the Mountains in an appendix as both could at a stretch derive from continental versions independently.

You have the MacNally version from Maine but there are 3 other versions in Flanders, Ancient Ballads.

There's a pre 1850s version in the Stevens Douglass Manuscript.

There are 2 prose versions in MacEdward Leach 'Lower Labrador Coast

And Niles gives a version from Ratliff which doesn't seem to have suffered much at his hands.
