Some wives when crossed, husband both and
	cub lick,
She silent sits and gives it to the public.x
Discord never in our house can blight one�
When we want peace (?piece) can she not always
	irritate one?
So to the Lady Fern, and also unto both
The little Ferns who now have got their growth,
Health and honor, happiness and glory,
Be continued � a la Ledger story.

	�� But really, at this rate,
	Considering it�s thus late,
	I shall lose your attention,
	Before I�ve made mention
	Of half the great throng
	That remain for my song:
	Mrs Thomson, with her black eyes�
	Mother of the noble Gracchi,
	Them Mortimer and Clif, named she,
	Thomsons both, � without a p;
	Immortal Doesticks is one brother
	Great Tribune fellow is the other�
  x Quite a Hudibrastic rhyme.
  � Oh! Jim !!!!!!!	        � Wasn�t present. Don�t
like her eyes, either.   � Does Police reports � thats all.
