Excerpt from Songs and Carols: Printed From a Manuscript in the Sloane Collection in the British Museum Ritson is perhaps not far wrong in conjee turing this ms. To be of the reign of Hen. V. If anything, I thinkjt may be rather earlier, but its greatest antiquity must be included within the fifteenth century. The circumv11 stances mentioned in the xivth song may per haps lead to a more exact estimate of the an tiquity of the songs themselves.
