X: 4 T:The Meeting M:2/4 L:1/16 C:quadrille figure from Peter Beemer mss, Warren ID 1860's S:researched/republished by Vivian Williams; this tune arr PLK R:Polka N:When played on the melodeon, the original quadrille tune just converted itself to a N:South English Polka. H:The original quadrille sett (sic) of dances was named "The Darkie Sett", which H:followed white folks' language of the time; pretty offensive in the modern era. H:Vivian found this tune to be the same as Figure 1, "The Meeting" (originally in C) H: in Henry Kleber's "The Engagement Quadrille", published in 1851.
