Henry Lawson wrote a poem about my great uncle Wattie and he features in some of Lawson's stories. Probably because Wattie owned pubs and gave Lawson free beer. Watson Braithwaite, Lawson called him Wattie Bothways, we've never really wanted to investigate the reason for that.
I really enjoyed this poem. Delightful. What an amazing poetic talent Mr. Henry Lawson has! Janilye, your great uncle, Wattie sounds like a person I'd have liked to met. Just hang around him for awhile. You can tell Mr Lawson in his poem liked Wattie. Humorous and meaningful.
