The editor wishes to make grateful acknowledg­ment to Professors H. M. Belden, Lowry C. Wimberly, Edwin F. Piper, Reed Smith and others, who have assisted her in various ways, especially by sending her desirable texts. Thanks are due to the Macmillan Publishing Company for permission to reprint four or five texts from the Cowboy Songs of John A. Lomax, to the H. W. Gray Company for permission to print a text from Miss Loraine Wyman and Howard Brock-way's Lonesome Tunes, to Boosey and Company for two texts from Miss Josephine McGill's Folk Songs of the Kentucky Mountains, to the Princeton University Press for a text from W. Roy Mackenzie's The Quest of the Ballad, and to G. P. Putnam's Sons for the reprinting of several texts from Mrs. Campbell's and Cecil J. Sharp's English Folk Songs from the Southern Appa­lachians. The editor is indebted for the suggestion that she make an anthology of American folk-song to Mr. Carl Van Doren.
