Gosh, Joel. I don't recall. I do know that the modern editor (well,
sort of modern, and I can't recall his name), when writing of the
fourteener, referred (I hope I have this right) to the "lilt and flop
of this almost always fatal measure." Fair or not, I like the "lilt
and flop"--up, up, up, op and then down, down, stop. Yes, mean and not
always true. Anne.
