Thanks for the contents of Whall's first ed.! That's very helpful.
I think we are mixed up on our third edition, however.
I am looking at the contents of the 3rd edition I have. After all the 1st edition songs, it adds:
The Saucy Arethusa
So Handy, My Girls
We'll Ranzo Way!
Again, I'm guessing that these were the same songs that "enlarged" the 2nd edition.
The rest you mention, ...
The 24th of February
Nigger Songs (a section title)
St. Helena Soldier
O Fare-You-Well, My Bonny Young Girls!
Shakings (a section title)
A Hundred Years Ago
Black Ball Line
The Banks of Sacramento
Clear de Track, Let de Bulgine Run
Run, Let the Bulgine Run
...Don't come until the 4th ed. La Pique/The Dreadnaught is there un the 3rd.
Here's an on-line version of 3rd ed.:
