This exam­ple with a large sig­na­ture is from anoth­er col­lec­tion. The accom­pa­ny­ing quo­ta­tion is by Sarah Church­ll, not her father: “You can break our hearts, but nev­er our resolve,” from lines she wrote one wartime week­end at Che­quers, the Prime Minister’s coun­try res­i­dence: “Arise, oh coun­try­men, arise, And with defi­ance face the dark­en­ing skies. Turn on the tyrant and say, The black night is yours but we will have the day. Dreams, hopes, faiths may yet dis­solve; You may break our hearts, but nev­er our resolve.”
