Original Poetry. A Wedding Day. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 6 December 1884
A Wedding Day. Tits first foil flush of dawn awakes The bnrper from his tuneful dream, Swcot inusio issues as ho shakes The harp thai hangs by wood and stream. So, brightly breaks the wedding day, MiM morning wings across the land, And in her train coy cupids l'lny, Whilo Hopo and Faith fly hand in hand. See Oliarity an angol nun From out tho gates of Heaven move, To greet tho guests who one by one liiiug in kind messages of love; Though hands may meet to part again, And budding hopes but bloom to die, Yet hearts aro never joined in vain Whose bond is sealed by Him on high. Tho failing light saints on the eaves 01 tree-thatched hills within tho west, Tho soft wind whispers to tho leaves : " The day washiest, tho day is blest 1" Though mirth be gono, and hushed the song . That nature saug this wedding day, Eternal echoes BWcet and lone Shall ring to-morrow and nlwny. G.

Since I; began my novitiate on I the battlo-fields of the.south, I have been a i frequent observer, of. the parsing, out of-my fellow-beings, in tbo. army and navy^ in large hospitals, civil and military, and in private lite, and hence, cannot help, feeling that what I have seen must be a fa(r sample, of the methods of dying peculiar to our.race.
