Abstract/ Summary

This newsletter will be as brief as it has been (up to now) non-existent. However, you are entitled to know what has happened to Northeast Folklore, which usually appears late in May or early in June. Well, very simply, it will appear sometime late in July or early in August. I will spare you any long and involved mea culpa at this point, although no one is to blame but me. However, all seems to be going ahead adequately now, and unless something goes very wrong you should have Northeast Folklore VIII soon. At that time we will also bill you for the academic year 1967-1968.

The forthcoming issue will be entitled, "Folksongs From Martha's Vineyard." More specifically, it will include some thirty items as remembered and noted down by Gale Huntington from the singing of members of his wife 's family, "The Singing Tiltons." Gale has also written a very informative general introduction and the headnotes and annotations for the individual songs. We hope as well to have pictures of the four men he learned songs from: Zeb, Welcome, Bill, and Alton Tilton.
