Original Acrostics on all the States and Presidents of the United States, and Various Other Subjects (1868)

As well as acrostics for all the states and presidents, Robert Blackwell provides ones for a host of other topics including the Moon, Whisky and the Ladies of Nashville. And just in case you thought it is was easy work, a little note from the author...

[Gentlemen.]
GRANT me one favor, I ask no more,
Examine all my writings o'er;
Not forgetting all the time
Tis hard to make a name to rhyme.
Let those who think they can compose
Excellent verse as well as prose,
Make one effort to be wise,
Ere they scoff and criticise
Numerous works they would revise.
