HAMILTON BRUCE (1846-1899) Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul. 1875 Of 32 George Square, Edinburgh. http://www.nra.nationalarchives.gov.uk/nra/searches/fedocs.asp?LR=234 Hamilton Bruce family of Falkland, Fife Scope 1622-1897: family and estate papers Repository National Archives of Scotland Record Reference GD 152 NRA catalogue reference NRA 33902 Hamilton Bruce r ------------- Poss.
