Original pen and ink and wash drawing of Olde English hamlet, snow and chidren, plus original verse by Crowquill. N.d., circa 1840s. 33 by 22 cm, and with matting, 51 by 41 cm. There are four staves without musical notation. Clearly the intention was to have a composer set Crowquill's words to music. Wonderful lyrics, with a powerfully evocative drawing on top, and the music staves and verses are laid over a backdrop of snowflakes and a gray brown that represents both the earth or the wintry sky.
