Textual History: Composition

Charles Augustus Howell became a friend of DGR, and his agent, despite the fact that he was notoriously disreputable, as this limerick directed at him suggests. DGR met him in 1857 and broke with him in 1876.

A general commentary on DGR's limericks and their context is available.
