He was friends with James Montgomery editor of the Sheffield Iris, who published both articles and poems of Holland's in the paper, although commenting on the latter's 'inaccuracies and imperfections' and remarking that 'they would be twice as good if they were as short again'. In 1813 Holland had become a Sunday School teacher and turned his hand to composing religious poetry and hymns. Some five years later he was appointed as a secretary of the Sheffield Sunday School Union. Rare!
