Subject: RE: Midwestern fiddling in the 1850s
Supreme confidence seems to have been a common failing of nineteenth-century essayists.

It's also interesting to read what songs the Indiana pioneers liked. Few of those mentioned have appealed to folkies.

And, of course, it's "Zip" not "Zup." Sorry about that.
