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!)
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,
Him we hope here to report.
Before our Morris,
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.
