NOTES: The Wiltshire-WSRO text is in "minstrel" dialect. - BS
This appears to be original. Wolf, p. 88, gives his song as "A Little More CIder," beginning "I love the white gal and the black"; it reportedly was "Sung nighly, with tremendous applause, by Buckley's celebrated band of minstrels." Since this broadside was published by De Marsan, the song must date from before 1880. - RBW
