Descripción

Both items in good condition, on lightly-aged paper. Poem: 1p., 4to. Titled at head: 'Forbearing Love | Romans XII 19-21.' Signed at foot: 'John S. Broad | Newcastle under Lyme'. The poem consists of 24 lines in six four-line stanzas. The first stanza reads: 'Heap coals of fire upon the guilty head, | And melt its malice down; | Let flames of love around it be outspread | And charm away its frown.' The last stanza: 'Thus shall it win its conquering way in peace, | Raise trophies free from blood; | Thus make the storms of sinful passion cease | And bow the heart to God!' Letter: 1p., 12mo. He writes: Dear Sir | In acknowledging your favor of the 14th Inst, I beg to say that the accompanying verses are at your service. Hoping they will answer your purpose.' There is no indication that the poem was published. Originating in Bristol, Broad obtained his M.A. from St. Edmund Hall, Oxford. In addition to St. George's, he was vicar of Pentney, Norfolk, 1875-1888. His only published poem appears to be a prize-winning effort titled 'An Account of the Fulfilment of the Prophecies relating to the Destruction of Babylon', published in 1825 in H. F. Burder's 'Juvenile Essays'. Broad's father, also John Samuel Broad, published a work on Sunday schools in 1816. N° de ref. de la librería 12617
