The Tale of the Mouk and the
An unbelieving Jew one day
Was skating o'er the icy way,
Which being brittle let hit ii.,
Just deep enough ti catch h chin ;
And in thit woui plight ie huingt,
With only power to move Is no.gne.
A brother skater near at hand,
A Papist, born. in Foreign I:an',
With hasty strokes dir'ctiv tl'w
To save poor Mordecai. the Jew
"But tirst," qtioth ie, '"i in ust eni.'in
That you renounce your (a.:h ti" intine;
There's no entreaties ei-e w'',
"Tis heresy to save a Jew-."
*Forswear Inine faut ! N, ! CaL forbiJ,
lYt w ould ho very bas'' ideed ;
Come, never mind such timers its deeze,
Tink, tmnk, how ferry hard it freeze.
More cont you do, miore coo: you be,
Vat signifies your ai; to me.
Come tiork agen,- how cold and vet
And kelp ab )ut von little hit."
"By holv mass. 'tis hard I own,
To see a man both hang and ilr.uwn.
And can't relieve him fromn his pl.ght
Because he is an Israelite.
The church refuses all assistance,
Beyond a certain pale and distance;
And all the service I can lend,
Is praying for your soul, my friend."
"Pray for 'nine soul, ha! ha! you make me
You petter help me out py half:
Mine soul. I farra nt, vill take care,
To pray far own self, my te.r
So tink a little now for me,
'Tie I am in de hole, not she."
"The church forbids it, friend, and saith
That all shall die who have no faith."
"Veil ! if I must pelieve, I must.
But help me out von li: t:e first."
"No, not an inch without Ainen,
That seals the whole--"
-"Ve!I, hnarr me den.
I here renounce for coo'n sind all,

Dey cheat, anid got deir lmng py't
And lie, arid swear dat lhe is rightn.
I'll go to rnass as .soon as ever
I get todler side de river,
So help rue rot, now Christian friend,
Dat I ary do an I rimenad."
"Perhaps you do int end rn chant,
If once you get upon your feet.''
"No, ne, I do intend to lie
A chtristian, such a one as d.
For, thought the Jew lie is as nmuchi
A christiant Inatn as I art such
The bigot Papint,joy ful hiea rted
To hear die hrer:ric coniverted,
Replied to the designing Jew:
"This was a happiy tall ior you;
Your'd better die a chiti n otiriirw,
For if youiwe you'll break: your vow."
Then said nio imore, but in a trice
