There�s our Larry
Who�d ne�er tarry
  Nor auld acquaintance let slip;
True to fame is
As her name is
  He would ne�er �give up the ship.x�

There�s Jack Crockett
On my docket,
  (Beauteous pipe, he to me gave!)
Brazened veteran!
Ne�er a better �un!
  May he sempiternal wave!

There is Russell�,
Who�d a tussel,
  With the waves this year at Newport;
�Mong great merchants,
Without perchance
  Him we hope here to report.

Before our Morris,
Mozart, Horace,
  Look out for your musty laurels!
x  Allusion to Lawrence the American naval �hero.�
�  Ritchie of that ilk.   He spent the past summer or part
of it at that pleasant seaport.
