Subject: RE: WHY 4 & 20 Blackbirds baked in a pie?
I was always given to understand that this was related to France and that the King was burning 24 protestants (France being Catholic), the singing being the screams as they burned. The King was counting out the money received from land and monies forfeited whilst oher protestants were fleeing abroad.
