“Markwell, Mary” [Kate Simpson Hayes]. “I am Content.” Saturday Night (19 May 1894): 8.

Sorry about the poor-quality reproduction; the poem occupies a tiny corner of a two-page spread on the microfilm… I hope it is sufficiently legible. The bibliography of Constance Anne Maguire’s 1996 MA thesis from the University of Regina, “Convention and Contradiction in the Life and Ideas of Kate Simpson Hayes, 1856-1945,” lists a number of obscure Kate Simpson Hayes’s articles and poems that we did not know about, but have now run off to find… this is one of them.
