Hi Art!

Yes. That's it.

As I'm sure you know, the idea was to "record" the songs for prosterity rather than to put out records and, given the cost of the shellac discs in particular, they decided to record only a few verses for melody and style and, as Charlie Baum has said above, Mrs. Warner took down all the verses shorthand.

What do you think of The Irish 69th?

All the best, Dan
