Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Robin Hood and the Fifteen Foresters
Thanks to you, Dick. For possible interest, I include, as a spoken intro, the rather odd four lines preceding the version printed in Child, about RH being 15 at the time of the incident. Whether [it only now occurs to me to wonder] we are to read any sort of symbolism into his having defeated one adversary for every year of his age, I am not sure.
