Frontispiece photos of Captain Jack. PRESENTATION COPY, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED, "To Hon. Wm. J. Bryan. Accept with love this little book Wee fancy buds from nature's bowers, With echoes from the singing brook, Where dew drops irrigate the flowers. Where towering pines and mountains grand Uplift their heads above the green And nature's bronchoes understand Out "Whar' the Hand O' God Is Seen". Sincerely your friend, J. W. Crawford, "Capt. Jack" New York 1913" At the bottom of the page is written: "Presented to the Hazen Memorial Library, by Mrs. Wm. Jennings Bryan." (Hazen Library bookplate on the verso of the front endpaper.)
