NOTES [78 words]: The [above] description is all of the Creighton-FolksongsFromSouthernNewBrunswick fragment.
It seems a shame to make a separate entry for so brief a fragment. It is tempting to include it under "Bordon's Grove" (Roud #2322) but there are no common lines. The note in Henry regarding the relationship of Creighton-FolksongsFromSouthernNewBrunswick 10 and Henry H529 describes Creighton's entry as "too short to say that it is the same with any certainty." Henry p.324 - BS
