P.S. I didn't say I wanted the Quadrille over. -
(Written during a quadrille)
I sing Elizabeth! The fairest name
That ever poet handed down to fame.
A name belonging to the fairest she,
'I'hat ever figured in a pedigree.
A name so graceful and poetical
That bards can both Eli zabeth and. Betty call.
And if hard pushed can venture farther yet '
E'en d.own to Betsy, or to humble Bet.
At once so elegant, so playful and so pretty
Venus's christian name, I'm sure was -Betty.
Bllt hold! -To dwell so long upon a name and leave the owner waiting! Fie! for shame!
