    來源:蘇州尤墨君(1888-1971)舊藏

    尤墨君(1888-1971),名翔,字玄父,亦作玄甫,江蘇吳縣(今蘇州)人,與弘一法師同為南社社友。他雖是一名中學教員,但文學造詣深厚,曾在《小說月報》、《中華小說界》等民國早期文學刊物上發表過不少文章。著作有《國學述要》、《碧玉串》、《寫作的疾病與治療》等,又與張冥飛、蔣箸超等合作《古今小說評林》。

    尤墨君與弘一法師私交甚篤,並曾為其募資出書。農曆1931年5月24日,弘一法師於上虞法界寺致弟子劉質平一函中談到:「尤玄父居士,人甚忠厚,於去冬曾寄《募資緣起》至法界寺,至今春正月返寺時,乃披誦,因允其請。其時佛學書局印拙書佛經之事,尚未發起也。今佛學書局既已願印,似應即托其經手為宜。至尤玄父居士所募之資,亦交書局附印。將來出書,仍交尤居士。」(參見林子青編《弘一法師書信》,生活 · 讀書 · 新知三聯書店,北京,2007年第二版,頁104-105。)

    此弘一法師墨寶,曾為尤墨君收藏。對聯所錄詩詞,語出歐陽修(1007-1072),寓意做人胸襟坦蕩、開誠佈公。這不僅凝練地體現出大師如若空谷幽蘭的人生哲學,亦絕妙地展現了他超逸出塵的書法造詣。
