At first I caught hold of the wing, And kept away; but Mr. ThingUmbob the prompter-man Gave with his hand my chaise a shove, And said: "Go on, my pretty love; Speak to 'em, little Nan. "You've only got to courtesy, whispEr, hold your chin up, laugh and lisp, And then you're sure to take: I've known the day when brats not quite Thirteen got fifty pounds a nightThen why not Nancy Lake?" 18

Aunt Hannah heard the window break, And cried: "0 naughty Nancy Lake, Thus to distress your Aunt; No Drury Lane for you to-day!" And while Papa said: Pooh, she may!" Mamma said: "No, she shan't!" Well, after many a sad reproach, They got into a hackney-coach, And trotted down the street! I saw them go: one horse was blind; The tails of both hung down behind; Their shoes were on their feet.

Quite cross, a bit of string I beg, And tie it to his peg-top's peg, And bang with might and main It's head against the parlour-door: Off flies the head, and hits the floor And breaks a window-pane. This made him cry with rage and spite; Well, let him cry, it serves him right. A pretty thing, forsooth! If he's to melt, all scalding hot, Half my doll's nose, and I am not To draw his peg-top's tooth!

What a large floor! 'tis like a town! The carpet, when they lay it down, Won't hide it, I'll be bound: And there's a row of lamps; my eye! How they do blaze! I wonder why They keep them on the ground. .. m rYrwnjiCrv. R'7nnmQ lnn 17

But while I'm speaking, where's Papa? And where's my Aunt?. And where's Mamma? Where's Jack ? Oh, there they sit! They smile, they nod; I'll go my ways, And order round poor Billy's chaise To join them in the pit. And now, good gentlefolks, I go To join Mamma, and see the show; So, bidding you adieu, I courtesy, like a pretty Miss, And if you'll blow to me a kiss, I'll blow a kiss to you. (Blows kiss, and exit.) 22

My brother Jack was nine in May, And I was eight on New-Year's Day; So in Kate Wilson's shop Papa (he's my Papa and Jack's) Bought me, last week, a doll of wax, And brother Jack a top. Jack's in the pouts, and this it isHe thinks mine came to more than his, So to my drawer he goes, Takes out my doll, and, 0 my stars! He pokes her head between the bars, And melts off half her nose! 3

The chaise in which poor brother Bill Used to be drawn to Pentonville Stood in the lumber-room: I wiped the dust from off the top, While Molly mopped it with a mop, And brushed it with a broom. My Uncle's porter, Samuel Hughes, Came in at six to black the shoes (I always talk to Sam): So what does he, but takes and drags Me in the chaise along the flags, And leaves me where I am. 14-
