"But in the writings of one poet alone I came upon a new note-the note of the Red Man's Canada. This was the poet that most interested me-Pauline Johnson. I quoted her lovely canoe song "In the Shadows," which will be found in this volume. I at once sat down and wrote a long article, which could have been ten times as long, upon a subject so suggestive as that of Canadian poetry." (From the Introduction to Flint and Feather, Collected Verse BY E. Pauline Johnson; written by Theodore Watts-Dunton, The Pines, Putney Hill. 20th August, 1913.
