INTRODUOTIONNo formal expression of appreciation could dojustice to the unselfish co-operation of Francis E.Walsh of San Francisco, Cal. A jnember of the one-time famous Irish Music Club of Chicago, Mr. Walsh,with the skill, patience and tact so essential to histask, sored in musical notation many fine variantsand unpublished tunes as played by clever fiddlers,and fiuters, now residing in that city. From thestorehouse of his own memory he added- other favor-ed numbers, and generously forwarded the total to theEditor in the interest of Irish musical regeneration.For years the correspondence of Dr. H. C. Mercerof Doylestown, Pa., was an intellectual stimulant..Curator of the Bucks County Historical Society, Dr.Mercer is also an enthusiast on. folk music, both Gaelicand American. QuotatiotIs from his published articlesAugust 28, 1922.on the latter, are included in the descriptive text. Tohis generosity we owe the historical pictures TheBlind Fiddler and Lochaber No More, printedfrom blocks supplied at his personal expense.As a sixth and final contribution to the cherishedcause of perpetuating Gaelic musical tradition, thecompilation of this workunique in many respects- was undertaken in the sunset years of a long andadventurous life, and at a time when the difficultiesof publication were most discouraging.Should the musical antiquary, or modern com-poser derive from a study of Waifs and Strays ofGaelic Melody as much profit, as the editor did ofpleasure in its compilation and publication, all is well,and the desired end has been attained..CLASSIFIED INDEXA 0 a prelimina1 y words Tlie is omitted in names of Airs or Tunes in tileindex.
