The 1898 Wrench catalogue inserts a reference '(Mermaid's Song, 'Come, love, oh, come, down to the palaces under the sea')' between Slides 4 and 5. This appears to be a prompt to include the song, for which the catalogue says sheet music is available, rather than a reference to a slide to accompany it.
