Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 6
Richie - we had some previous discussion on The Politic Wife and its relation to Buchan's The Devil and the Feathery Wife here: Origins: The Devil and the Feathery Wife. Not the same song as Child 278 of course, but with some common elements (a farmer, his wife and the devil).
