"They don't call him James Whitcomb Riley round about where I live. Taking the liberty of old friends, they telescope the James, amputate the Whitcomb, and just say "Jim Riley". And they pronounce the words, too, with a loving heart as they might say "Sweetbriar Rose" or "Winesap Apple" or "The Old Folks at Home" or any other tender fragrant epthet bringing dear quick memories of summer garden or winter hearth" - Edwin Markham ; 187 pages.
