    Dichter & Shapiro, p. 151, evidently the same imprint, but presumably without the heading: "New Edition."

    A very popular song, and an early work! for Jesse Hutchinson, Jr., written many years before by the English author, Mary Howitt. Jesse and Abby were members of the famous Hutchinson family, and this is a very nice early work, although exactly what Jesse's contribution was is hard to say.
