"Beware the Ulsterman, my son"

‘Beware the Ulsterman, my son -
The jaws that bite at kin and kith;
Beware the Carsonclan, and shun
The frumious Ridersmith.’

Thanks to William Lytle of Edinburgh Books for posting this fascinating excerpt from the 1915 book Malice in Kulturland on his blog. My copy of Robert Blair's autobiography was from William, I've never been to his shop but plan to call in the next time I'm over.
