Author Riley, James Whitcomb, 1849-1916
Title Afterwhiles
Credits Etext produced by "Teary Eyes" Anderson
HTML file produced by David Widger
Most of this etext was made with a "Top Scan" text scanner, with a bit
of correcting here and there. Mr. Riley does spell pretty=purty and
such things and have been left as printed, including the first poem
in this book listed as "Proem" on both the contents page and the
page headers, even though in later editions this poem is simply called
"Afterwhiles." In "The South Wind and the Sun" the line is 'Laughed out in
every look.' while in later versions it has the word 'nook', replacing
'look.' The poem "Old Aunt Mary's" is later retitled "Out To Old Aunt
Mary's" and later enlarged by 13 verses. The "In Dalect" section has the '
to replace a letter that he left out, to make the word sound a certain way,
including words like sure-enuff he writes as sho'-nuff, or He'pless as
helpless and ect. This etext is based on the 1898 edition Published by The
Bobbs-Merrill Company, Indianapolis Publishers. "Teary Eyes" Anderson***
