The Play-Party in Indiana.
Break and shoot the buffalo, We will rally through the eorn, Break9 and shoot the buffalo.
The following variant comes from Miss Fannie Stewart of Shelby Township. She says, ''This is another of the old favorites."
Come to me, my dearest dear, And present to me your hand. We'll travel in pursuit, . Of some far and better land. The boys will plow and mow, And the girls will knit and sew, We'll travel through the corn-brake, And shoot the buffalo.10
d. Miss Delay's variant resembles that of Mrs. Ames (Missouri Play-Party, Jour. Am. Folk-lore, vol. XXIV, p. 301) but does not describe the hunt so completely.
Miss Goldy M. Hamilton (Play-Party of Northeastern Mis­souri, Jour. Am. Folk-lore, vol. XXVII, p. 300) gives another variant.
J. A. Perrow (Jour. Am. Folk-lore, vol. XXVI, p. 137) prints another variant.
Chase the Squirrel.
