"I live in dreams. The melody of my voice enchants my soul." Once on a ravishing moonlight night while Covington's guardian angel slept at his post, this carolling, somnambulistic individual stole away and wandered into our midst, where he is still carolling and somnambulating. How beautiful must be this dreamer's world of melodious revery and fleeting visions! It is the lamentable Tragedy of Dreams that they rarely come true, yet we cannot but believe that Piggy's will some day somehow be realized, perhaps in a cottage by the sea where he can sing the livelong day to the murmuring of the eternal waves.

-The Kentuckian, 1914
