עמוד 172 - Until he came unto the Wash Of Edmonton so gay; And there he threw the Wash about On both sides of the way, Just like unto a trundling mop, Or a wild goose at play.

עמוד 170 - So, Fair and softly ! John he cried ; But John he cried in vain, That trot became a gallop soon, In spite of curb and rein.
עמוד 173 - My hat and wig will soon be here, — They are upon the road." The calender, right glad to find His friend in merry pin...
עמוד 174 - Twas for your pleasure you came here, You shall go back for mine." Ah, luckless speech, and bootless boast !

עמוד 75 - That, Father ! will I gladly do : 'Tis scarcely afternoon — The Minster-clock has just struck two, And yonder is the Moon.
