  • New Canadian Copyrights registered during 1901 lists Scott's the Secret among them (no. 12274, low in page 4 of the june 1901 issue)- unlikely if it was really first published 9 years later, in 1910. That and the plate number information suggests strongly that this was published in 1901 - from the evidence of the score, in 1900, with someone having stenciled in an 'X' for reasons unknown to make it look like 1910.
