Note 1

Bathe / Clissold - 'Published in FOUP p 303 m/s missing'

Note 2

Williams, Alfred: WGS: '* Morn t'e - Good morning to ye.' The presence of this note in the paper makes sense when compared tothe manuscript vrsion.

Note 3

This is titled, "Children's song on Valentine's Day, Eastleach.

Note 4

The WGS / FSUT text differs from the manuscript as follows:

Verse 1

Mornty*, Mornty, Valentine!
Blow the oats against the wind,
We are ragged and you are fine,
So please to give us a Valentine.
