    The Cooper's Wife

    I, like Marian Stroh, am eagerly awaiting the resolution of the mystery of 
    Ian Brown of Harrogate's «The Cooper's Wife».  My class has been dancing Wee 
    Cooper for years, and if there is such a companion dance, I'd likewise be 
    most happy to have the instructions.
    Since Ian's subject was in fact The Wee Cooper of Fife, I wonder if his 
    in-paragraph mention of The Cooper's Wife might just have been an 
    unintentional slip of phrase.
    (Only you, Ian, can answer that!)  If there is no such dance, then it's 
    nonetheless a wonderful play of words, and someone ought to devise one--with 
    ten-bar phrases of course--post haste.
