  If you�ve an idea, don�t repress it,
But if � now mind �
You words can�t find,
  Tell him and he�ll expressx it.

Then there is �Liza,
How we prize her!
  For her music, gift so rare!
Anne, her sister,
(Nearly missed her!)
  Shines in �trifles� light as air.

Then there�s Matty,
Great on patty,
  Pudding, pie or jam or jelly;
Crowned with curls is,
Best of girls is,
  As all who know will also tell ye.

Counting noses
Find two Josey�s
  Miss Price, Miss Nettie and Miss Behm,
All are pretty
Girls, and witty
  And our love have every claim to.

x Smith � a recent acquaintance � is in the Express business.
