Notes
Source(s): Victor blue history card; Victor ledgers.
Victor ledgers: "Dr. M. F. Forsyth."
Disc label: "The Methodist Church sleepy time series." Two disc labels on the Victor blue history card present the matrix ID without a catalog number and state, "For private use only." The disc labels bear different titles, "Lullaby of the little snails" and "Lullaby of the little ones." It appears that the title was changed in response to a handwritten note on the BHC from "RPW" [Robert P. Wetherald] dated 5/5/1941 that states, "Record does not mention snails."
Ledgers indicate that the master recording was "personal" for the Methodist Church. However, the master was also released to the general public as part of album BC-39 "Sleepy time songs."
