Thread Name: Origins: The Bold Benjamin
Subject: RE: The Bold Benjamin

I managed to get a copy of Captain Chilver's Gone to Seafrom the Bodleian Library site. My first attempts to find it using their search engine were fruitless but when I browsed the entries I found it under the title The Poor Benjamin, O. I can't understand why I didn't get any hits with Benjamin or Captain Chilver as a keyword. The title of the broadsheet is actually The Benjamin's Lamentation. Some of the middle verses are a little hard to read because of the smeared original but all sixteen verses are there.
