[Tennyson, Frederic- Autograph Manuscript Poem] "Davy and the Dignified Flunkey
by Tennyson, Frederick
A fascinating manuscript poem by Alfred Tennyson written by Frederick Tennyson, brother of Alfred. The poem was originally wedded to a copy of Frederick Tennyson's "Days and Hours," (1854) and presented to Charles F. Goss from his pal, A Tennyson, but now stands alone. A few lines: "Most dignified Flunkey beware of the hour/ When Davy shall ask thee with manner so sour,/ If yet thou hast washed with the ordered soft soap/ For if not, you ought to be whipped with a rope..." 16 lines in total, followed by "Alf. Tennyson/ Poet Laureate." A rare survival indeed. (Inventory #: 2992)
