From Starr's obituary by Bret Harte, March 4, 1864


Came the Relief. "What, Sentry, ho! How passed the night through thy long waking?" "Cold, cheerless, dark, -as may befit The hour before the dawn is breaking."

"No sight? no sound?" "No; nothing save The plover from the marshes calling, And in yon western sky, about An hour ago, a Star was falling."

"A star? There’s nothing strange in that." "No, nothing; but above the thicket, Somehow it seemed to me that God Somewhere had just relieved a picket."
