Mick Pearce (MCP) Origins: The Flying Cloud (86* d) RE: Origins: The Flying Cloud 06 Jan 19

The print history is very sparse. After the Wehman edition, I think the next documented is the 1919 version in Mackenzie's The Quest Of The Ballad.

I have a couple of new references, which as far as I can see are not in the Roud index:

From 1916: The Duluth Herald for Monday March 26th prints a version sent in by Mrs.F. La Freniere of Grand Rapids, Minn. This version is almost identical to that published in the Journal of American Folklore, Vol 35, 1922 (which refers to Minn versions) Duluth Everning Herald (top left of left page - magnify to see).

1926: Adventure Vol60 No.03 (Aug 1926) prints a copy contributed by a Captain A K St.Clair of Vancouver, who I also can't find in Roud. I haven't compared this with other versions yet. Adventure 1926.
