It was the purpose of this candidate to write a volume of poetry, entitled The Froward Mouth and Other Poems. The Froward Mouth may be described as a long lyric with a background narrative depicting the tragic degeneration through loss of moral restraint of the Loudon family over a period of some sixty years.
