By Professor Judith Boss, University of Nebraska, Omaha Cather, Willa. _The Song of the Lark: (1915 Edition)_. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1915/1943. Notes on e-text 1915 edition of Song of the Lark: Contractions in the printed text, such as "I 'm" and "do n't" have been contracted to "I'm" and "don't". Exceptions to this are: On page 401 in text line 4 and page 419 in text line 19, the line breaks occur between "would" and "n't". The desire to preserve line breaks of this edition to allow line count to become a reference has effected this exception.A double quotation mark (") has been inserted before the first letter of page 22 (first line of section IV of part "Friends of Childhood") to pair with the quotation mark at the end of the sentence: (Summer!").Page 98, text line 1: A double quotation mark has been inserted before "Mother" to open the quotation that the double quotation following "Mother" closes.Page 121, text line 24: Following "Kron-" on line 23 on page 121, "born" on line 24 has been changed to "borg". The speaker is Mrs. Kronborg, not a Mrs. Kronborn.Page 126, text line 33: "only one or twice a year" has been changed to "only once or twice a year". The sense of the sentence (parallelism with "twice") mandates the change.Page 223, text line 35: Kornberg has been changed to Kronborg to accord with spelling of the name in the rest of the book.Page 263, text line 14: The double quote (") mark has been removed from after the exclamation mark. It seems to have no opening paired double quote.Page 288, text line 1: A double quotation mark (") has been inserted before the first letter of the first word (THEA,") to pair with the quotation mark after the first word.Page 370, text line 1: A comma has been inserted between "dimension" and "Dr. Archie."Page 414, text line 13: The spelling of "challeged" has been corrected to "challenged".
