Whose Is The Sin?

By O Byron Copper
Published 1947 by
Christopher Publishing House

I found a hard cover / first edition / copy at Talking Leaves in Gillette, Wyoming through  The book is described as a poem of philosophic truth.
It is 5 1/2 inches wide x 8 inches tall.  It has 51 pages and is 1 poem.  A portion of the first page follows:

It was on a frosty winter's night
That we men were drawn to Craig's saloon
By its atmosphere of warmth and light
And its prospect for the week-end boon
Of relief from haunting petty cares
In deep draughts of Craig's refreshing wares.
With a round of drinks the house then buys us,
All unseen, the wine god, Dionysus,
Now slips in to flaunt his mystic lure,
For all human woe a transient cure --
To fire brain, speed pulse, unleash the truth,
Leaden age transmute to golden youth.

Copper contributed to cemetery history
By Staff New Castle News
NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:
The obituary for Dwight Copper that appeared in The News on Saturday did not mention that Dwight was the author of books related to local history.
Over many years, Dwight compiled inscriptions on gravestones in cemeteries in our city, the townships and boroughs. Dwight tramped through old and new cemeteries, including Greenwood and Parkside.
Most of the books record names and dates. Others, such as the one for Normal Glen cemetery, includes copies of obituaries.
Many of the books include cemetery maps. The book on Valley View, for example, shows the "Syrian Section." Genealogists who use the public library's history room will find several shelves full of these useful records.
The library's catalog lists 99 titles under Dwight's name.

According to O B Copper his grandfather, Ralph Copper (1814-1899), wrote a book of poems that was published under the nom de plume of “Old Eagle”.
Oscar Byron stated that his grandfather referred to the poems as songs. 

If anyone has a copy of the poems published under 'Old Eagle' I would appreciate your sharing some kind of report about it with us.
Sharing a copy of the book itself would be even better.

I will pay for copy costs, postage, etc.
