Doings of the Al71habet.A, in the garden, a large Apple found;Ripe, red, and mellow, it lay on the ground.He divided it first, and then handed it round.B,, watched the Bees, all the Summer-day long,Busy, the sweet-scented flowers among;Filling the air, with their soft, droning song.C, stroked the Cat, as it slept in the sun;Good boys never sleep, till their lessons are done;.But Puss, is but Puss, and so tasks she has none.D, called the Dog; in his kennel he lay,But readily came, at the summonis to play;Are we always willing, and quicl to obey ?

Doings of. the Al kabet.E, went for Eggs, and was highly pleased, when,She spied out the nest of an old speckled Hen;Who had filled it with Eggs, to the number of ten., fed the Fowls, how delighted they came;So greedy for food; it would fill me with shame,If children, forgetting themselves, did the same.G, heard a Goat bleat, and turning around;Old Billy the Goat, in the garden he found;-But Billy kicked up, and was off with a bound.H, saw the Horse, and he asked leave to ride.Honest Hanks, with good humor, soori set him astride;And through the green meadows, ke t close to his side./
