John H. Warland (1807-1872) was a native of Cambridge, Mass., and a graduate of Harvard College. He studied theology but never was ordained as a preacher; instead he turned to writing. Warland wrote some fine poetry and was editor of the National Eagle (Claremont ) for seven years, during which time his young wife died. After that he moved to Manchester to be editor of The American, followed by editorship of The Journal in Lowell, MA; and an association with The Atlas in Boston. Warland succombed to insanity for the last twenty years of his life, and died at an asylum in Taunton, Mass. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
