Thread Name: John Lomax's credibility, an example
Subject: RE: John Lomax's credibility, an example
The cylinder of Dink is lost, by all accounts. What Lomax handwrote based on the cylinder (which still exists) might include him throwing in a Katie Adams stanza that he'd learned from a riverman because he liked it, for all we know. And if that, other non-Dink stanzas for all we know. We can't listen to the cylinder.
