Quotation

Rufus Wainwright

"I've developed into quite a swan. I'm one of those people that will probably look better and better as I get older until I drop dead of beauty."
Rufus Wainwright

Newspaper Articles

"An interesting meeting was held on Monday evening, at the White Swan Inn, Weaman Street. On the occasion, nearly one hundred persons met to do honour to William Palmer, a young man, late of the 34th regiment, who received three severe wounds, and lost a leg at the memorable storming of the Redan. It had been suggested that he should be set up in some little way of business, a ballot for his double holster pistols was proposed, and speedily no less than 650 subscribers were obtained. On the occasion of the ballot, the best wishes of those present were given to Mr. Palmer, who in the course of the evening, with much naive eloquence, and force, narrated some of his experiences in the "tented field." In the song, toast, and sentiment, all the old sufferings were forgotten, and a very pleasant evening was passed."
"A Crimean Victim"
Birmingham Journal : April 8th 1857 Page 1.
