Excerpt from Poems by the Wayside: Written During More Than Forty Years The Dream of a Child was a real dream, that came to me at least as early as my ninth year, - perhaps earlier. It left an indelible impression. The trees mentioned - the locust and the mulberry - grew near the door of my Father's house in Allegheny City, near Pittsburgh. The place is now known as Killbuck. The Bees of St. Simon's, and the verses following it, were published in Savannah, with some much longer pieces written by my oldest sister, Mrs. Charlotte Emily Fay, in deference to the urgency of an enthusiastic friend, who thought that the profits would be something hand some for Missions. Of course, the only result was a dead loss of the entire cost of publication. As to Hughie's Alarm, and the Anticipation of the Lawn beth Conference, I would respectfully refer the Reader to the Notes.
