The Courier carried advertisements and feature articles on this series. Th
issue of 30 November 1841 contained the following:


Native Poetry to Native Music.-We have been favored
by Mr. S. HART, Srnr., with Nos. 1 and 2 of "Songs of
the South," containing "The Land of the Pine, the Cedar,
the Vine," words by SIMMS, music composed and arrang-
ed for the Sapnish guitar, by. F. KINLOCH, and "My
Carolinan Maid;" and "My Carolinian Maid," words by
Simms, music composed and arranged by D. C. You, Mr.
HART deserves much credit for this effort to give added
charm and popularity to the effusions of our native bard
by their association with the rich strains of such masters
of the instrumental music.
