Binding tight and square. .................Leonard Foster was a well known poet who was born in Brooklyn OH in 1840 and who also served in the Civil War..............Mr. Foster was only eight years old when he composed his first poem, consisting of less than thirty words. Since then he has been a constant and prolific writer of poems and gem thoughts, the total of which runs into many hundreds. His published works include 'Whisperings of Nature,' which ran through five editions; 'Blossoms of Nature,' one edition of 500 copies; 'The Early Days,' one edition of 500 copies; 'Songs of Nature,' 100 copies printed in sheet music and in periodicals. Of his songs 'Old Glory' and 'Little Brown Brown Button' are the most widely known. Now, in his eighty third year, he is still writing with all the ease and ability of former years. Each year he attends the Lake Geneva Chautauqua, and recites his poems. He has been on the program there for many seasons. During 1922 he composed 100 poems for delivery for the forum at this Chautauqua. His permanent fame is in the realm of poetry. As a poet he has given distinction to the City of Cleveland. Consequently it is appropriate to conclude this brief sketch of his life with an appreciation written by one of America's most widely known lecturers and writers, Dr. James Hedley: ' 'The Early Days' should be read in the quiet of the evening, with curtains drawn, and before an open glowing hearth, if its sweetful spirit is to be caught. It is a book for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am glad Mr. Foster has given us this book. It is a teacher of contentment, and an evangel of peace in these days of contentment and voice.'
