Poems and notes by Thomas Welsh
Description
Poems and notes by Thomas Welsh. This page consists of 1) Two stanzas from the anonymous short poem “Music” included at the beginning of the document use the metaphor of music to describe the grandeur of sounds found throughout nature (waterfalls, wind, rain, streams, etc.). The 2 additional lines suggest that Welsh may have been trying to add to the poem. 2) 9 lines of bold script identifying Thomas Welsh at Mrs. Philips Missouri Hotel in Little Rock, July 30, 1845; and also referencing Captain Alexander at Fort Smith; Daniel Boone Logan, son of Col. Logan, Creole Agent; Charles Adamson of Little Rock; Mr. Hicks printer; the Steamboat Frankland with Kendall as Master, Wade as Clerk, and Dallow as Bar Keeper. These appear to be notes made by Welsh to remember names and details.

Description
Poem, "The Clarion." The first part was transcribed by Thomas Welsh, second part was evidently written by Thomas Welsh. The first eight lines are the first two stanzas from a temperance piece called "The Clarion” that appeared in a number of temperance journals in the early nineteenth century, including the Journal of the American Temperance Union, January 1841 and The Washingtonian (Augusta, Georgia), September 17, 1842. Second part seems to be an original 14 line poem by Welsh; first lines reads "Sweet one, please tell me why art thou so sad." The dates of the poems are not specified.
