John Milton Hay



From "Men of Mark" [[1]]under transcription on Wikisource:

His first published work was "Castilian Days," studies of Spanish life and character (1871);

1875 he published a translation of Emilio Castelar's treatise on "The Republican Movement in Europe."

1890 Mr. Hay published a volume of poems. He has been credited with the authorship of a remarkably strong novel entitled "The Bread Winners," dealing with the problem of labor, capital and strikes.

Some of the "Ballads " which appeared in his second published work were written during his college days and attained great popularity. The best known among the collection are "Jim Bludso" and "Little Breeches," which, owing to their pathos and their local color, must long retain their place in the affections of the American people.
