Thread Name: Child Ballads: US Versions
Subject: RE: Child Ballads: US Versions

I assumed the whole article, "Folk Tales"- which includes the song, was by the same person so that would probably be "Draufield." The other D. would be an ibid. Not sure why there was a D.X.

A small point and probably untraceable for now. The best place to look would be in other Notes and Queries- and I didn't find anything.

Not that it matters but this information is not attached to the current editions on the Child Ballads.

TY Lighter by-the-way for your imput. This is new ground for me and I simply haven't studied each version enough and it's history to know off-hand.
