Could someone kindly confirm (or not) the Minicrib version of Terry
Glasspool's dance, Glenora Ferry?

"33-40 1s dance 1/2 Fig of 8 round 2s as 2s set & cross RH, 1s dance
1/2 Fig of 8 round 3s as 3s set & cross RH"

Considering the previous and following movements, this seems surprising.

Martin, here's the confirming equivalent from Eric Ferguson's "Dancecribs,"
which I always find quite clearly stated (and which I think that everyone
would be well off having).

33- 1C ½Fig8 up –while– 2C set & cross RH ; 1C ½Fig8 down –while–
3C set & cross RH (2,1,3)

We have danced The Glenora Ferry quite a bit hereabouts, and I have never
found anything particularly awkward either in flowing from what precedes
this figure or flowing into the next round from its conclusion; it's a good
dance.

(In the "kill two birds with one stone" department, I guess that this then
constitutes a "plug" [Americanism?] for both Terry and Eric.)
