A Half-Hour in an Old Cemetery

A Half-Hour in an Old Cemetery is a sketch by L.M. Montgomery, signed “M.M.” and published in the Halifax Daily Echo on 26 September 1901 and reprinted in the Halifax Morning Chronicle the next day. It describes a “ramble” in the cemetery of St. Paul’s Anglican Church in downtown Halifax that Montgomery would later weave into her novel Anne of the Island (1915). The essay is reprinted in A Name for Herself: Selected Writings, 1891–1917.
