Published in an arrangement in 1878 by White, Smith & Co. (scanned by the Library of Congress). The song "The Sailor's Farewell" (pub.1879) available at the same site is the same song melodically (suggesting what Tar means in this context.)

Is voice, piano, flute certainly the original instrumentation or possibly another arrangement, the work having, as often happened, undergone several, often uncredited and unattributed? (One can think of a few reasons for the "as often happened", maybe not quite so many for the laxness in informing purchasers of exactly how what they were getting related to what the composers thought they'd- well, another subject and not for here, and not simply a late-19th-century thing by any means :) )
