Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
'you are now pretending that you can' I'm sorry, Jim. I don't see how that statement relates to any of my last few postings. Perhaps somebody can explain. I'd say you were the one clutching at straws, but let's not get back into all the backbiting. I have promised not to be drawn into that.

All I was trying to say about Fowler was his output largely consisted of the very stuff you have been complaining about, as opposed to the output of the likes of Pitts and Catnach in London which was much more varied, and contained many of the songs we now call folksongs.
