I am interested in a "philologically correct" version of the poem. For
Carl's sake... (I hope this is not blasphemous, in any sense ;-) ...)
The question I posed concerned some possible typo in the text that has been
published, on this ML and afterwards on quite a few magazines. For example,
the last verse might possibly be "us glad we bought their story" instead of
"us glad be bought their story".
Daniel, in fact, mailed us a text that is slightly different from the
"first known version".
Apart from my question, it would be nice to have a copy of the fax you
