'With Lippes as Cold as any Stone, They Kist The Children Small', c1878. The dying parents give the Babes a farewell kiss as their uncle feigns grief. A ballad of c1600 tells the story of the owner of Wayland Hall, Norfolk, who died leaving his infant son and daughter in the care of his brother. If both children should die before the uncle he would inherit their wealth. After a year, greed overcame duty and family affection. From "The Babes (or Children) in the Wood", illustrated by Randolph Caldecott. [London, c1878]
