Henry Farmer took an avid interest in Scottish music, helping ensure works by composers such as Hamish MacCunn would not become lost to history. Additionally, he organized community song festivals and adjudicated at band championships.
Henry employs an ethos appeal in sentence 1. He refers to the patriotism and ethics of Convention members before outlining his own. Henry asserts that either speaking now or being guilty of both treason and disloyalty to “the Majesty of Heaven” constitutes two acts that would amount to criminal behavior – this constitutes an either/or fallacy.
Early Life and Education
Henry Farmer was born at Birr Barracks, Crinkle in County Offaly in Ireland where his father was serving with the Leinster Regiment. Early musical aptitude manifested itself through piano and violin lessons which ultimately lead to him performing at local concerts with his sister.
His interest in freethinking politics led him to contribute articles to The Freethinker newspaper under various pseudonyms such as Padraig Krinkill, Haydn O’Donnell, Evan Williams, Gerald Barry and Stan Brunton.
Concerned that the work of contemporary Scottish composers would be lost, he persuaded several to deposit manuscripts at Glasgow University Library – these have now been catalogued and can be accessed by visitors – an unprecedented achievement which would not have taken place without his efforts.
Henry Farmer was an extraordinary young man who brought so much to his community and the hockey world. Always hard working, sporting a positive spirit and enjoying every task at hand he left a mark that will be missed by all who knew him. He will forever remain in our memories.
Farmer was active in union matters during his years at the Empire and one of its main contributors to its journal. Additionally, he contributed articles anonymously to The Freethinker using various pseudonyms so as not to compromise his military career. Furthermore, Farmer enthusiastically supported radical movements; his collection includes several cuttings from newspapers that demonstrate this interest as well as friendships from many nations around the globe.

Farmer continued writing and preaching well after retiring from the college, cataloguing much of Glasgow insurance broker William Euing’s extensive music collection, as well as playing an integral role in publishing several works on religion.
One of his key publications during this period was an English translation of Francisco Salvador-Daniel’s work on Arabic music; an article was later written about this topic as well. Additionally, a substantial work he was producing at this time remains in typescript form.
