Uncle Tom’s Cabin

The first verse begins: ‘I’m thinking of poor Uncle Tom, / So generous, kind, and brave; / The white man came when he was young, / And claim’d him as his slave.’ A woodcut illustration has been included at the top of the sheet showing four scantily-clad figures in a clearing. There are no publication details given, but this is one of two songs – printed by James Lindsay – on this sheet. for more click here
