Comments

A short memoir of the life and literary activities of Richard Henry Wilde (1789-1847), reprinted from the Augusta Chronicle of September, 1885. Jones sought to rescue Wilde from obscurity, and to make the case that the poem "My Life is like the Summer Rose" - a popular Southern poem whose authorship was in dispute - was by Wilde.
