, a right chirpy march two-step just begging to be whistled to, was inscribed to Miss C. Rose, La Grange, Indiana. Its form is AABBACCBB with a 4-bar introduction and a 12-bar interlude between the CC- and BB-strains whereby the AABBA- and CCBB-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively.
