Charles MacLaughlin

Life
Author of lines: ‘If thou art borrowed by a friend,/Right welcome shalt thou be,/To read, to study, not to lend,/But to return to me./ /Not that imparted knowledge doth/Diminished learning’s store,/But books, I find, if often lent,/Return to me no more.’

Notes
‘C.McL.’ of Coleraine inscribed in a sticker attached to front papers of W. J. Lawrence, Life of Gustavus Vaughan Brooke [copy in University of Ulster Central Library].
