2
   Suggested by the life of
      JOHN HOWARD PAYNE
    and his immortal song,
     "HOME, SWEET HOME"

3
  Not biographical but photo-dramatic
and allegorical, and might apply to
the lives and works of many men of
genius, whose failings in private life
have been outweighed by their great
gifts to humanity.

4
  Payne, actor, poet, dramatist, critic,
a world wanderer, he, who had never
known a home since early boyhood,
amid the bitterness of adversity con-
ceived this song.

          HOME, SWEET HOME

'Mid pleasures and palaces though we
                               may roam,
Be it ever so humble there's no place
                               like home!
A charm from the sky seems to hallow
                                 us there,
Which, seek through the world, is ne'er
                       met with elsewhere.

24
Home! home! sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home!

25
An exile from home, splendor dazzles in vain!
Oh, give me my lowly thatched cottage again!
The birds singing gayly that come at my call;-
Give me them, and the peace of mind dearer
                                  than all!
