McT OUGHLIN BRO'S, PuOlishers,
30 Beekman Street
I Deep seated in a flowery vale,
Beside a woody dell,
SStood Shrubland Hall, where, says the tale,
A worthy pair did dwell.
THE CHILDREN WITH THEIR PARENTS
Two beauteous babes this happy
To crown their loves had got:
'I'he proudest monarch on his
31ight envy them their lot.
THE UNCLE TAKING THE CHILDREN.
But death, in midst of all their joys,
Did seize this loving pair,
Who, dying, left their girl and boy
Unto an uncle's care.
THE UNCLE BRIBING THE RUFFIAN
But to their fortunes he aspired,
And to secure his prey,
He two unfeeling Ruffians hired
To take their lives away.
THE RUFFIANS WITH THE CHILDREN.
These wretches, cruel, fierce and
SConveyed them to a wood,
SThere, for the sake of filthy gold
To shed their infant blood.
THE RUFFIANS FIGHTING.
But one his purpose did repent,
Before the deed was done,
And slew the other Ruffian there,
Then left the babes alone.
THE CHILDREN IN THE WOOD.
Their little hearts with terror sank,
With hunger, too, they cried,
i At length upon a flowery bank,
They laid them down, and died.
THE CHILDREN'S DEATH.
The Redbreasts, in their clustering
Sung mournful on each spray, N,
And there with leaves and fragrant
O'erspread them as they lay.
