Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Mother Carey (Masefield)

You're correct that Masefield does not identify Davy Jones and Mother Carey as "husband and wife." However, he does mention Davy Jones as "her man" and elsewhere refers to him in "so me and my mate can dine" leading me to believe that they were at least POSSLQs.
