The old settler's song by Francis Henry( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An undated manuscript copy of the poem by Judge Francis Henry with text written in ink, accompanied by illustrations in ink which have been colored by hand, most likely using colored pencils. The leaves are side-sewn and bound in a handmade binding of printed red cloth over boards; the main gathering of leaves has become detached. Tipped in at the front is a printed note card with a decoration of three ships and letterpress-printed text in red: "I saw three ships come sailing in Christmas Day in the morning." Handwritten in ink on this card is an undated note addressed to "Dear Uncle Manson" and signed "Caroline" presenting the manuscript (presumably as a Christmas present). On the front pastedown is the armorial bookplate of Manson Franklin Backus. The identity of Caroline is not clear, nor whether she was a relative of Backus or if "Uncle" is used here as an honorific. It is also not clear if Caroline also was the creator of the item. Possibilities may include Caroline Mackley, wife of British illustrator George Edward Mackley (although the illustration on the printed note card is not in his graphic style). The item probably dates from the period in which Backus was most actively involved in amassing his collection of Pacific Northwest books (from 1927 to the time of his death; see also "Gold Horizon," pages 181-189)
