Additional comments From the library of Johannis Bumpus, later owned by A. H. Mann. Contains some interesting notes by Bumpus and Mann and further a discussion about the origin of Flintoft's chant.
Unusual notation (probably common at the time): in 4/4 time, first (and 3rd) quarter (in beats) 4|2-2|2, second (and 4th) quarter 2|1-1-1-1 |4. In the index this is transformed into today's usual 4|2-2|4 || 4|2-2|2-2|4 notation.
