Collier, John Payne 1847a
Collier, John Payne. [Communication to John Mathew Gutch containing Robin Hood and the Tanner's Daughter] (c.1847).
This ballad is most probably one of Collier's forgeries. Gutch, of course, had no idea the ballad supplied by Collier was a forgery. Where can this MS letter be found?
