N:”This is the only Tune I have at all interfered with. I had it played by 
N:three different Fiddlers, and they all persisted in ending in the Major
N:Key. viz: making the C in the last bar Sharp. They were unanimous 
N:in upholding the version, and when I played it as it is now set, ending 
N:Minor, they were very much shocked. And I confess I make the change 
N:unwillingly, but at the suggestion of friends to whom I “could not choose” 
N:but submit.”
