Strangers to Us All Lawyers and Poetry

S. Edwin Ireson

(1830-1874 ?)

"S. EDWIN IRESON, Esq., who was for several years city solicitor of Lynn, where he was born in 1830, wrote several poems. He graduated at Harvard College, and died in Lynn . . . . He had talent as a writer, which his frail constitution would not permit him to cultivate. He contributed to many periodicals, generally anonymously."
