This is the King of Ashantee, perched up so comically;


i NBS-g. 3 '^ .*^.


And here is his gracious Majesty, about to play at Aunt Sally.

Here at tea,

You all may see

A highly respectable Family,

Who, in fact, have a little Hash and Tea.

Above you may observe the way


In which they meet and say "Good day;"

Below, a Gentleman and a Boy

Are going to lunch, and jump for joy.

This is how they hunt the Lion:

A blanket to a pole they tie on,

And hold it as the picture shows,--

The Lion springs, and down he goes.

A Native going out to fish,


May bring home a pretty dish;


But may chance to get a fright,


If he has too big a bite.

This sketch is meant to represent

A meeting of the Parliament.

The Ashantees are eloquent,

And rather fond of argument.

Such is the way

In which they play.

I don't know the name

Of this funny game.


















































A Family out for the day,

They carry their food on the way,

With a spear, and an axe, and thick stick;

I think it must be a picnic.

Catch a Crocodile asleep,


And drag him by the tail;


But if the Man should go to sleep,

'Twould be another tale.

















































A fashionable Dinner Party.

The appetites of all are hearty.

To speak while feeding

They think bad breeding.

The King and all
Dance just like this;
How odd it is!

This is the King of the Ashantees,

At sea in his State canoe;

Perhaps he is coming to visit us,

As the Shah and the Czar did do.
