MBe.55, The M:6/8 L:1/8 Q:3/8=120 R:.Jig N:Someone has written in a different hand alongside the title, "Sylph" N:Sylph is a mythological creature in the Western tradition, associated with invisible beings/Fairies etc N:A reference that may be of interest. "More than 40 members of [the] Lakeland Dialect Society attended the N:first meeting of the year, at Greenodd, near Ulverston. Miss Clara Boyle, of Ambleside, pressed for the N:inclusion of Cumbrian dances and eventually in 1932 the Westmorland Six Reel was accepted, however it was N:renamed 'The Sylph.' much to the disgust of a man from Bowness who wrote a letter of protest in dialect to N:The Westmorland Gazette" [the local weekly newspaper].
