1  The Waves [Song, melodic line only]
[No tempo mark]
 D 1907
 T By HC (age 9 or 10), according to a letter from his mother to his
father, accompanying a letter from HC to his father identified by SRC
in the margin as having been sent from Des Moines, IA, in 1907. Writ-
ten as a poem below the tune, the words begin "Oh the waves with
dashing spray / Come with roaring every day."
 M Pencil draft incomplete in 26m on pi of HC's letter
2[The Golden Legend theme for piano]
Middle Section - Sustain
 D 1908-9. Antinomy dates from 1914, but HC repeatedly said (on
Folkways FM-3349, for instance) that this theme is the sole surviving
music from a setting of Longfellow's Golden Legend undertaken when
he was 11 (11 Mar 1908-10 Mar 1909).
 M Pencil sketch, 16m, in the middle of Antinomy (no. 213/5)
3 lulaby [for piano]
Largo - Running lightly
 D ca 1910
 M On recto of a small sheet from a music tablet (said by SRC, on a note
laid in, to date probably from late 1910) are some 6m in a sprawling,
juvenile hand, the notes mostly arpeggiated triplets from bass to tre-
ble with a few quarter notes in sequence. The verso of the sheet does
not, however, continue this lullaby, which must have carried onto
another sheet now lost.
