Charles MacLaughlin

Author of lines: ‘If thou art borrowed by a friend, / Right welcome shalt thou be, / To read, to study, not to lend, / But to return to me. // Not that imparted knowledge doth / Diminished learning’s store, / But books, I find, if often lent, / Return to me no more.’

‘C.McL.’ of Coleraine inscribed in a sticker attached to front papers of W. J. Lawrence, Life of Gustavus Vaughan Brooke [copy in University of Ulster Central Library].
