‘Dear Sir, I am your debtor for a much prized inscribed copy of your last volume for which …accept my best thanks – A number of your pieces are already familiar since I have been impressed by them upon their first appearance. From your letter it appears as if I owe to my connection with the Federal movement…& certainly could wish that the people of this great colony were inspired with the lofty patriotism which breathes through “The Nation Builders” “The Commonwealth” “Australia” “An Australian Symphony” & “The Land of My Dawning” – and radiates indeed everywhere in your verse. Although believing myself fairly abreast in a general way of all the song which sees the light in the colonies I know no singer who has surpassed ..vignettes of Australian life & Australian scenery which sketched in many of your pieces are crowded into “Lorraine” – It is but a week ....since I read it & recognised it ... as the ripened & most finished work which you have yet given us – the simplicity, fidelity, terseness & grace of its pictures blend and flow so musically that the difficulties of maintaining the march of such couplets without allowing them to become mechanical is completely ... - Now that this afternoon I have .. possession myself of the book I shall hope to grow equally familiar with such of its other contents as are new to me – I trust that the higher note sounded in your “ordinations” & “speech of Poetry” may …the sadder strain which has affected no inconsiderable portion of your published song – “To find your life & live it – This is Life” as you yourself have seen whether for Mr “Average Man” or woman or those who know the “splendour & the curse of song”. With renewed thanks & all good wishes Yours very truly Alfred Deakin."
