Thief Haggart
The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

Thief Haggart

When young he was a dashing blade
and everyone admired him.
He worked hard at his honest trade
until the day they fired him.
He turned to crime and served some time
to the shame of those who sired him.
They put the blame upon the name
of the villain who inspired him.


*This surely cannot be the notorious David Haggart, who was only twenty years old when he was executed for the murder of a prison guard in 1821.
