69. pass on pass reach : ‘attain to summit after summit.'

396 ARTHUR WILLIAM EDGAR O'SHAUGHNESSY (1844–81) was engaged at the British Museum, first in the literary, and afterwards in the natural history department. He wrote four volumes of poems, of which Music and Moonlight, from which the following “ Ode' is taken, appeared in 1874.

1. We: the poets.

22. the old ... the new : i.e. the Past and the Future.

397 WILLIAM ERNEST HENLEY (1849–1903), poet, editor, and critic, collaborated with Stevenson in writing three plays, and published several volumes of verse. These splendid lines, written in 1875, when he had lain for months in Edinburgh Infirmary, were printed in his first work, A Book of Verses (1888). In a later edition they are headed · I.M. (in memoriam) R. T. HamiltonBruce (1846–99).'
