The Paine biography states the following lines were uttered by Richard
Watson Gilder at Clara's wedding to Ossip Gabrilowitsch:

                Over the hills and far away,
                Beyond the utmost purple rim,
                Beyond the night, beyond the day,
                Through all the world she followed him.

Is this is a quotation from Gilder's own work, or someone else's? I've
always wondered, but have not yet identified the source.

Anyone know the answer?
