Edition Notes

The American Antiquarian Society copy is a fragment, consisting of p. 17-76, with signatures C through I in fours and two leaves of gathering K. Title taken from Evans, who evidently derived it from an advertisement by Hugh Gaine in the New-York gazette and weekly Mercury for Oct. 11, 1779. The "Song. The queen's birth day. Newtown, Queen's County, Long-Island, May 19, 1779," p. 61, supports the supposed date and place of publication.
