Subject: RE: The Testimony Of Patience Kershaw-child miner
The Workhouse Boy, a new one on me I must confess, is very similar to the Mistletoe Bough, sharing many of the same phrases and clearly fitting the same tune. i don't know Nic Jones tune.
Since the Mistletoe Bough is usually dated 1884 I would imagine the Broadside is the earlier one.
