Excerpt from The Songs and Ballads of Cumberland: To Which Are Added Dialect and Other Poems; With Biographical Sketches, Notes, and Glossary

The want of such a collection has been long felt and acknowledged by many. That it has not been supplied before must occasion surprise to all who are acquainted with the abundant stores of lyrical poetry possessed by this county.
