Synopsis: Excerpt from Bahama Songs and Stories: A Contribution to Folk-Lore

While this work is intended as a contribution to folklore, yet it is hoped that the songs and stories will appeal to those not specially interested from the scientific standpoint. The genetic relation existing between the tales and music of the Bahama and of the United States negroes will be readily discerned. Parallels from accessible collections of American, and of native African, folk-lore are indicated. The material for this paper was collected during the summer of 1888, at Green Turtle Cay, of 1891, at Harbour Island, and of 1893, at Bimini. The stories I.-XI., and XXXIV., and a portion of the Introduction, were published in "The American Journal of Psychology," vol. ii. No. 4, Worcester, 1889; and stories XXXI. and XXXV.-XXXVIII., in the "Journal of American Folk-Lore," vol. iv. Nos. XII. and XIV., Boston and New York, 1891.

I wish to express my thanks to President G. Stanley Hall, who has kindly permitted me to use again the material which appeared in "The American Journal of Psychology;" to Mr. A. E. Sweeting, of Harbour Island, Bahamas, who was good enough to note down the music to most of the songs; and to Mr. William Wells Newell, for valuable advice and assistance in connection with the publication.
