Description
Excerpt: JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY. A SKETCH. On Sunday morning, October seventh, 1849, Reuben A. Riley and his wife, Elizabeth Marine Riley, rejoiced over the birth of their second son. They called him James Whitcomb. This was in a shady little street in the shady little town of Greenfield, which is in the county of Hancock and the state of Indiana. The young James found a brother and a sister waiting to greet him John Andrew and Martha Celestia, and afterward came Elva May Mrs. Henry Eitel Alexander Humbolt and Mary Elizabeth, who, of all, alone lives to see this collection of her brother?s poems.
