Title
Smith the Preacher
Description
The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

As gentle and pure as any child
his faith was hard to knock.
Something in the way he smiled
endeared him to his flock.
The godless, when inclined to mock
would suffer something of a shock.
Although so mild, he showed, when riled
a temperament as hard as rock.
