Edgar Lee Masters (1868–1950).  Spoon River Anthology.  1916.

90. Rev. Lemuel Wiley


I PREACHED four thousand sermons, 
I conducted forty revivals, 
And baptized many converts. 
Yet no deed of mine 
Shines brighter in the memory of the world,         5
And none is treasured more by me: 
Look how I saved the Blisses from divorce, 
And kept the children free from that disgrace, 
To grow up into moral men and women, 
Happy themselves, a credit to the village.  10
