“We’re Coming, Fadder Abram / An original song by E. Bowers, Esq., expressly for Dan Bryant. . . . Dan Emmett’s new Plantation Song / How Are You, Greenbacks! . . . Introducing this Excelsior Troupe in their festival scenes.” COMMENT: The song titles here are incorrect. Emmett’s song is actually called “Greenbacks, while the Bowers song is actually called, “How are you, Greenbacks?” See Database records for explanation.
