Thread Name: How old are the oldest Child ballads?
Subject: RE: How old are the oldest Child ballads?
Lighter: ...the question was "What is the oldest Child ballad?" It was not "What is the oldest item in Child's collection?"

Excuse me if I'm being thick, but what is the distinction you're making here?
