  whiteshark: <Bad To The Bone;

On the day I was born, the nurses all gathered round,

And they gazed in wide wonder, at the joy they had found

The head nurse spoke up and she said leave this one alone,

She could tell right away, that I was bad to the Bone.

Bad to the Bone., bad to the Bone,

B-B-B-B-Bad to the Bone B-B-B-B-Bad,

B-B-B-B-Bad, Bad to the Bone.

The good is oft interred with their Bone.

"The name of this gentleman must be pleasingly familiar to every modern Chess Player, as the author of many of the most beautiful Problems which this country has produced." Howard Staunton

  MissScarlett: <ILN>, February 23rd 1856, p.215:

<(To the Editor of the Illustrated London News.)

Will you allow me to inform the Chess community through the medium of your columns, that I have in my "Chess Player's Annual" unwittingly inflicted a great personal injury on Mr. William Bone. That distinguished strategist is not (as I was informed on what I supposed to be good authority) dead, but is in full possession of health and mental faculties, which I regret to say have not been devoted to the cause of Chess for some years past.

I am, &c., Charles Tomlinson.
12, Bedford-place, Ampthill-square, Feb.12 1856.>
