Montgomery BookA trip to Maine would not be totally successful without discovering a rare book of poetry signed by the author and an antique muse cameo necklace/pin. The 100 year-old poetry book is entitled “The Spirit’s Work” by Job H. Montgomery, Brookline, Boston, The Riverdale Press, Publishers, 1914.

An inscription on the inside cover reads: “June 19, 1920, Raymond Fellows from the author J. H. Montgomery,” and concludes with “‘A book is the only immortality'” Rufus Choate.” Both Fellows and Choate are Maine historical figures and require further research.

Muse CameoPerhaps I will write more when not so tired from a full night and day of traveling. “O muse, cup and pitcher, help my poetry flow.”
