There is nothing to argue against the Mary Dodge authorship, as you note. Her name is mentioned more than once.
We need that Beadle for early lyrics- some library has a copy but I haven't located it yet.
Looking in Abebooks, a few of the old Beadles are offered, all over $100, but not the ones with MPQ. A couple have been reprinted but all of them should be.
