RUMMAGING recently among some old possessions, I found in a cigar‐case a grimy double sheet of note‐paper with the heading: “date 3 Jan. 1909. All this Poetry was by Mr. R. Craig I think it Will do Just now. I am a good Drawer as People think. I remain.” The poems are on “Christmas,” “New Year,” “The Ocean,” and “Love Marriage and Etiquette.” While these verses proclaim the triumph of inspiration over orthography, their poetic content is poor, and it is unsettling for a bachelor to discover that when eight years old he was gaily capable of writing about his Wife and Boys.
