Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 3
There are various literary rewrites of the Yarrow ballads which may account for more than one Roud number.

Richie,
Have you still not got access to Flanders? You really should have access. It would make this project so much easier, not only for the texts but for the notes also. Had you been this side of the pond I'd have lent you my copies. Delormes' version is Vol 3 p257. It has 9 sts. I haven't time to type it out but I can scan it and email it to you if you wish. There is another version of 7 sts from Mrs Belle Richards of Colebrook, NH.
