"King William"

McCormick’s original caption for this was ‘”King William” foots it gaily.’ A Cumberland tinkler and a Carlisle lad who were travelling in company as clog dancers next favoured the company with a breakdown. One of the two played a mouthharmonium as they danced. This merely served to whet the appetite of William, the King of the Marshall gang, and he speedily formed a square for a reel. He and his consort were partners and soon amidst much hooching and yells of laughter, they were cleeking and swinging and footing gaily the jolliest reel imaginable.
