Date16 May 1912
Extent1 item
DescriptionCovering letter sent with third volume of his ballad records just copied by Mary Ann Crichton, whose work he praises highly; this completes work up to No. 54 in F.J. Child 'English and Scottish Popular Ballads'; hopes they can meet in summer when both are less busy; agrees with James Bruce Duncan regarding faulty intonation of folk singers and that diatonic scale is sufficiently accurate for their recordings.
