Burnsiana free pdf Excerpt from Burnsiana: Speeches Prof. John Wilson, Rev. Dr. Wallace, Gen. Jas- A. Garfield, Hon. S. S. Cox, Hon. W. P. Frye, Hon. J.

It was customary, you know, in former times, to crown great poets. No such oblation honored our bard- yet he, too, tasted of human applause - he enjoyed its delights, and he knew the trials that attend it. which, think you, would he have preferred?
