Season 1909-10: fourth supplement to the general catalogue of lantern slides (Bradford: Riley Brothers, 1909), 3

“'Grannie' was much alarmed when a rough young fellow jumped up and seized her in the dark porch where she had taken shelter from the storm. But she was a cheerful soul, and her gentle words and readiness to trust him had their reward, as the poem shows. It is written with the vigorous simplicity and straightforward earnestness which characterises all these 'Ballads'.”
