Lessons learned while reading the ballad collection of Francis James Child.
by David Kessler
|A NOTICE FROM FRANCIS JAMES CHILD:
Due to the great volume of letters received I have not been able to answer you all
as promptly as I would wish. I appreciate your patience in this, and would also appreciate if
future writers would be as succinct as possible in stating their situation - it simply isn't necessary
to give me the over one hundred verses of detail, as one fair maid dwellin' in Dublin town did.
Finally, if anyone knows a Scot named Glenloughie, please ask him to re-send his letter, but
to write it in English this time.
