    In Due Season If night should come and find me at my toil, When all Life's day I had, tho' faintly, wrought, And shallow furrows, cleft in stony soil Were all my labour: Shall I count it naught If only one poor gleaner, weak of hand, Shall pick a scanty sheaf where I have sown? If we suffered by being close up, the Germans suffered from us, for already tales of good shooting came down to us. And yet it was a sure instinct which prompted the writer to send it to 'Punch'. Send us an email. There was a heavy French attack on our left.

    And yet it was a sure instinct which prompted the writer to send it to 'Punch'. From until Macphail practised medicine and taught at the University of Bishop's College. For some reason the guns had awakened in the Salient. At 10 it cleared, and from 10 to 2 we fired constantly. Canadian artist John M. His classic book "The Master's Wife" is a memoir of his childhood in this very house.

    Sunday, April 25th, John McCrae in a series of letters to his mother, cast in the form of a diary, has set down in words the impressions which this event of the war made upon a peculiarly sensitive mind. Although he was upwards of forty years of age when he left Canada he had always retained an appearance of extreme youthfulness. Captain Lockhart, late with Fort Garry Horse, arrived to relieve me. The nondescript affair on the low slope is the gun position, behind it the men's shelter pits.

Sir Andrew Macphail book

Penumbra Press

A wise editor knows when to keep his mouth shut; but now I am free to say that he never understood the nicety of the semi-colon, and his writing was too heavily stopped.

New York: Longmans Green, Our 4th was turned on: first round over; shortened and went into gunfire, and his report was that the effect was perfect. The wave tops whiten on the sea fields drear, And men go forth at haggard dawn to reap; But ever 'mid the gleaners' song we hear The half-hushed sobbing of the hearts that weep.

On the fifteenth day we got orders to go out, but that was countermanded in two hours. We dug in the guns as quickly as we could, and took as Headquarters some infantry trenches already sunk on a ridge near the canal. As the trenches run in all directions they catch the wind however it blows, so one is always sure of a good draught.

As a reproduction of a historical Sir Andrew Macphail book, this work may contain missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. Friday, April 30th, All our own wagons had to come there one every half hour in smart actionbe emptied, and the ammunition carried over by hand. Equality I saw a King, who spent his life to weave Into a nation all his great heart thought, Unsatisfied until he should achieve The grand ideal that his manhood sought; Yet as he saw the end within his reach, Death took the sceptre from his failing hand, And all men said, "He gave his life to teach The task of honour to a sordid land!

Others have watched this resurrection of the flowers in four successive seasons, a fresh miracle every time it occurs. The Colonel rode ahead to scout a position we had only four guns, part of the ammunition column, and the brigade staff; the 1st and 4th batteries were back in reserve at our last billet.

The Captain Here all the day she swings from tide to tide, Here all night long she tugs a rusted chain, A masterless hulk that was a ship of pride, Yet unashamed: her memories remain.

Then France, England, and the world were doomed. These shells have a great back kick; from the field gun shrapnel we got nothing BEHIND the shell—all the pieces go forward.

He brought the paper in his hand from his billet in Dranoutre. Ahh Spring! A good deal of suffering is entailed by the delay till night, but it is useless for vehicles to go on the roads within yards of the trenches. At great length—but the December evenings in Flanders are long, how long, O Lord!

Our men looked curiously at the Boches as they were marched through. On Sunday we kick off our Sunday brunch series with Sandra Martin. This magazine had its origin in McGill University, Montreal, in the year This was at a place we call Twin Farms.

The guns are in bad shape by reason of dirt, injuries, and heat. At the beginning of he became managing editor of the monthly Montreal Medical Journal. Macphail has received relatively little attention from Canadian historians. Prior to the talk a full breakfast is served veg and GF options available and tea and coffee is flowing.

II Ah, little eyes Dead blossoms of a springtime long ago, That life's storm crushed and left to lie below The benediction of the falling snow! To-day we got our dressing station dugout complete, and slept there at night.Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead, Vernon Bridge, Prince Edward Island.
