Excerpt from Songs of the Settlement: And Other Poems Many of the lyrics in this little volume have their root in the memory of pioneer days. They are blossoms of the Settlement, retaining, the Author would fain hope, something of the twilight dew which nurtured and enwrapped them. May their fragrance help to sweeten the garden of life!
