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.
The Baldwin Library
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.
I ''".' --
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.

A Royal Ball.
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.
