Excerpt from Henry Sylvester Cornwell, Poet of Fancy: A Memoir
Henry Cornwell was one of a family of children who were early deprived of a father's supporting care, and so compelled to learn the many lessons of grim poverty while struggling for daily bread. In his boyhood he ... was employed at one time on a farm in the interior of our State, and among the homely farm duties assigned him was the task of churning.
Naturally studious beyond his years, Henry ordinarily stood over the quaint old-fashioned churn working the well worn handle with one little hand, holding in the other hand a book which he studied.
