CHARLOTTE FISKE BATES (AUTHOR) - HANDWRITTEN POEM

CHARLOTTE FISKE BATES (1838 - 1916) was an American writer, born in New York City. She published a volume of verse, under the title Risks and Other Poems (1879), contributed many articles to magazines, and edited the Longfellow Birthday Book (1881), Seven Voices of Sympathy (1881), and the Cambridge Book of Poetry and Song (1882). In editing the first-named works she worked with the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, whom she also assisted in compiling his Poems of Places. She was mentioned by Dr. Franklin Johnson in his eulogy of Longfellow in 1882. In 1891 she married M. Adolphe Rogé, who died in 1896.

A handwritten poem, undated but probably late 1800s. Edge wear, pencil notations, and small fold tears, very good condition overall. Also included is the "translation" of the 19th century handwriting, provided by the Lincoln Library organization.
