Hid treasure, or the labours of a deacon, and other poems : [manuscript]

  • MS-2-158, SF Box 19, Folder 7
  • Item
  • [before 1892]
Item is a manuscript of "Hid Treasure, or The Labours of a Deacon and Other Poems" dated April 29, 1919, possibly when the pages were taped into the bound scrapbook with the title embossed on the spine. A contents page lists both published and unpublished poems, including "Betula Nigra," "The Prince's Lodge," and the title poem "Hid Treasure." The manuscript date is unknown, but the poems were written ca. 1839-1886. Robert R.J. Emmerson's name appears as co-author on the title page, but is scratched out along with the second of two epigraphs.
