Gibb Sahib Origins: 'The Shaver' (10) RE: Origins: 'The Shaver' 26 Feb 16

Compare Hugill's statement:
"Terry vouches for the antiquity of this next shanty and claims that his great-uncle often sang it."

To Colcord's:
"He vouches for the antiquity of this earlier form and says that his great-uncle used to sing it."

These writers were not very careful with their words; they obscured the assumptions they were making, leading readers to not notice them!
