Misc. Comments

text is from Joseph Brennan's "A Love Song to My Wife", printed in 1869? in The harp of Erin: a book of ballad-poetry and of native song edited by Ralph Varian as a "pendant" to Brennan's own popular "A Song to My Wife" of three years earlier.

Tucker's comment: "An Irish exile of 1848, from New Orleans, to his wife in Ireland, after he had been stricken with blindness."
