"Burt, Armistead, lawyer and poet, was born in Abbeville District, S.C., in 1802, and became Speaker of the House of Represenatives. He was quite a poet and produced three volumes of verse . . . . But he outgrew the poetic habit; and for the next fifty years no other work appears from his pen. He died in 1883."
