PRAY, all who buy this little Book,
Accept these wishes kind;
Be pleased its errors to o'erlook,
And to its faults be blind.

2. Silvery beams o'er waters blue.
3. My native Isle, fair freedom's seat.
4. This do, to make the two ends meet.
5. A Jewish maid, with locks of jet.
6. My dog's sad way, the naughty pet.
7. Come fill the goblet high with wine.
8. A merry lot in life be thine.

9. The clouds are gath'ring for a storm. 10. Pendent, it shines, in many a form. II. My heart is rent with grief and woe. 12. He was my friend,—but now, my foe. 13. That noise again! those patt'ring feet. 14. O for my Cat to kill and eat!
