John Howard Payne, the author of
that touching and inmortul song,

man. An incident in his career fur

He had the most exact and beauti.

regarding home, and yet personally lie
was a stranger to all its tender and
loving lufluences. A wanderer and
and Bomn3timeR a vagabond, he has
moved the human heart to its very
depths by his exquisite lines.

his disposition to roam, his only wi--h

Not long after, the song of "Home,

is more especially re-called by the
closing verse :
