Misc. Comments

Two notes:

The original (in a New York publication) is scanned in at LoC (will download it from there and post it here when I am back at my home computer in a couple of days :) - the link is here. - Schissel

A research study from Florida State ("Flute Performance Practice in the United States (1870–1900: An Exploration of the Repertoire and Writings of American Flutists Sidney Lanier and Henry Clay Wysham" by Ellen C. Johnson, dissertation, available online) indicates that either Lanier or Wysham performed this song at least once (if not more often - no composer is listed by the dissertation's author, by the way) during the period 1870–1900 also (on 23 Dec. 1874), so (arguably) the work still remained at least marginally in the repertoire at that time.
