And, printer, so niutt I;
I too mu11st keep me posted,
And know what 's goin'g on',
Or feel al(d be accomited
A fogy simpleton.
Theni take it kindly, printer.
If pay be somewhat slow;
For cash is not So plenty,
Ani wantsz not few vou know;

And do without my tea.
So printer do not stop it,
Unless youl want Imly frown.

And (redit it right down;

And regularly oil,
And let it bringr us weekly,
