Lines Fer Isaac Bradwell, Of Indanoplis, Ind., County-seat Of Marion

(Writ on the flyleaf of a volume of the author's poems that come in one of gittin' burnt up in the great Bowen-Merrill's fire of March 17, 1890.)


Through fire and flood this book has passed.--
Fer what?--I hardly dare to ast--
Less'n it's still to pamper me
With extry food fer vanity;--
Fer, sence it's fell in hands as true
As yourn is--and a Hoosier too,--
I'm prouder of the book, I jing!
Than 'fore they tried to burn the thing!

(The end)
James Whitcomb Riley's poem: Lines Fer Isaac Bradwell, Of Indanoplis, Ind., County-Seat Of Marion
