HENRIETTA HORNPIPE. AKA and see "Aurora Hornpipe." American, Hornpipe. F Major (Cole, Ryan): G Major (Miller). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "Henrietta Hornpipe" is another renaming of a tune ("Aurora Hornpipe") in Elias Howe's Musician's Omnibus Nos. 6 & 7 printed c. 1882, only a year or two prior to Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883). It is curious as both were published by the Elias Howe music publishing company of Boston, but perhaps it was a deliberate renaming so as not to appear duplicative to the buying public.
