ROBBINS, C.E. Doggerel Character Sketch. Yarmouth, N.S.: n.pub., 1917. Pp (8) including covers. 8vo, pale yellow stapled card covers. First stanza : Many poems have been written, and songs have been made / About Yarmouth's dead heroes, but I'm not afraid / To make a short rhyme about some who are living / So that they can enjoy it; but I have a misgiving / That some might not take it just as it's intended / So I'd like to ask of those who are offended / To remember that rhymers great licence must take / With any old word the right metre to make / So if you don't like it, I swear by St. Peter /I am not to blame—it's the fault of the metre.” Some of the people he ment ions (and there are many) include Mayor Jake Grant, Maggie Kelley, Dr. Perrin, Dr. Bambrick, Louis Porter, Dave Saunders, Dr. Farish, Lovett Hines, Capt. A. Horner, Bill Rogers, James Rozee, Frank Robbins, Capt. John Murphy, Ann Anderson, Mel Trefry, Chas. R. Syoneman, Murray Lawson, and a hundred more. Very good. 35.00
