Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 3
Child is quite clear on his opinion on the various pieces related to 213 and the way it has been rewritten. He gives plenty of information on p156 of Vol 4 and I haven't seen any of his assertions refuted anywhere. Don't forget to look at the footnotes.

Pinkerton's assertion on the previous page 'was without question considerably manipulated by the editor. All the important variations are certainly his work' Pinkerton published in 1781/3. Do we know who he was referring to?
