These things just escape me . . .

Still working on ye olde anthology project, and am experiencing some mild frustration. Maybe, ye socks can help?

In the effort to collect the known writings of local author Will Wallace Harney, I have been unable to locate any copies of the newspaper he wrote in the 1880s: "The Kissimmee Bitter Sweet."

I have also been unable to find four items he published in The Southern Bivouac:

  • “City Building in the South,” particularly intriguing to local historians as it was published in the wake of Harney’s subdivision of his homestead land and the arrival of the South Florida Railroad in Pine Castle.
  • “Nirvana,” evidently a poem.
  • “Orange Culture,” possibly a condensed version of the material on this subject that appeared in his earlier letters.
  • “Wild Life in the Seventies,” also probably drawn from his earlier letters.

Any help/suggestions greaty appreciated!
