      Description ''Ah! Thought may tread the lonely wild, ...''

      Clipping reads: [double rule] | Written for the Mercury. | STANZAS. | The Memorial Beech. | [rule] | BY W. GILMORE SIMMS, ESQ. | [rule]  
      Notes Position: top left, obscuring manuscript, ''[To My Lyre],'' and the first stanza of ''The Last Flower of Summer.''

      Kibler notes that, though this clipping reads ''Written for the Mercury,'' it was not found in the Charleston Mercury. It likely appeared in an unlocated issue of the Raleigh, NC Mercury or New York Mercury (171).
