Abstract:

The papers contain a 63 page book of "walk-rounds" composed by Emmett, 1859-1868, most of which were staged by Bryant's minstrels. "Dixie's land," "Turkey in the straw" and "Cross over Jordan" are included. The songs are fair copies in an unknown hand. A page of handwritten "remarks" by Emmett prefaces the volume. The collection also contains a play "Hard times, " 1859, with directions for staging and casting.

Inserted in the "Hard Times" manuscript were several items pertaining to the Ankeney or Ankeny family including a school essay on a Catholic church in Washington [Ohio?], a telegram re a visit to a grave of Emmit in Portsmouth, a leaf from a recipe book, a Confederate dollar bill, a chronological list of 39 titles by Emmett, a lock of hair, an eyeglass prescription and a commission in the 60th regiment Ohio volunteers.
