Robert Burns Supper
8. Poet Laureate

Richard Taylor, Poet Laureate of the State of Kentucky, Kentucky State University Professor of English, and distinguished author, was one of many guests who paid tribute to Robert Burns. Rabbie's childhood tutor noted that his young pupil "made rapid progress in reading and was just tolerable at writing." Another pretty good argument for always getting a second opinion. Burns died, at age 37, on the same day that his wife Jean gave birth to a son.
