Kipling published his first collection of verse, Departmental Ditties, in 1886, a year that also brought a change to the editors at the Civil and Military Gazette which allowed him more creative freedom and the ability to contribute short stories to the newspaper. Departmental Ditties includes Delilah, The Legend of the Foreign Office, The Story of Uriah, The Betrothed, The Moon of Other Days, and The Fall of Jock Gillespie.
