Haynes Family Manuscript Errata and Addenda for the first printing

p. 9 “Angelina quadrille” is listed as sheet music to exchange in the classified ads section of “The Exchange and Mart,” London, April 1871. A quadrille by the same name written by A. Palmer is listed in the Music Publishers’ Association Catalog in The Musical Times, London, 1883 under “Pianoforte music - solos.” “Angeline-Quadrille für Orchestra” by J.

p. 36 Jack Woolsey was a fiddler who played for dances and owned a saloon in Canyon City, Oregon, in the 1860’s and 1870’s. His wife’s name was Sophrona, and it is possible that “Fredi” was a mis-hearing of the nickname Fronnie.

p. 42 In a review of new publications from Firth and Pond publishers, the November 1860 issue of the New York monthly magazine “The Knickerbocker” declared that this tune was “wrongly named, being in no degree narcotic.”

p. 53 There should be a D chord in the 4th bar of the last staff.
