OUR FAMILIAR SONGS.
MEET ME BY MOONLIGHT.
Both the words and music of this song, the first line of which has become one of the most familiar of all "familiar quotations," were produced by J. Augustus Wade, an English composer, who died in London in 1875, aged seventy-five. He was extremely poor, and in his last days literally went begging among the music publishers.
