Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads in 18th c. America?
I have on several broadsides mostly early 19thc under titles such as
Cold Blows the Wind
The Weeping Lover (Bodl website)
The Mournful Lovers.
Of the last title there are 2 different copies in the Madden Collection, both maddeningly without imprint, but with seraph s which could be late 18thc
