In rival play in glorious chess,

" "Yes, 'tis a mate, I see,
But only such, my darling pride,

A LIVE YANKEE IN LONDON.
BY GEORGE W. BURGAY.
A live Ysukee, from the Grfen Mountains
of Vermont, visited the city of London.
While piBsing through one of the principal
thoroughfares of trade and travel, his at
tention was suddenly arrested by some
beautiful specimens of writing paper, ex
posed for sal at a shop window. Seeing
the proprietor of the establishment sta:idini
at the door, the Yankee civilly inquired ol
him what he did with ' them nice bit of
We keep them to tie up oafs sepd in,'
said the cockney, snappishly.
'O.ve du du jre?' said Jonathan, while
he looked as though he was Inventing t
trick with whicn he intended to pay off the
impertinent cockney in his own coin.
Passing dovn the street a few s'eps, our in
dignant Yankee saw another merchant, who
was not only an Englishman, but a gentle
'I say, mister, can you tell me what that
feller duz for a livin 'what kteps them ere
nice bits of paper at the winder ?'
'Yes, sir, he is a small dealer in paper, and
a tort of a scribe. He writes letters for
Ihose persons who desire assistance '
'1 reckon he is a very shall dealer, and
that be is a phasibek as well as a fcribe.
Do re think he'd write a letter for me if I
pay him for it f
'Certainly he will, and jump at I he chance.
That is hi principal occupation.'
The Yankee thrust his hands (I might
add arms) into his pockets almost up to his
elbows, lor he felt the sting in the waspish
words uttered by the paper dealer, and
walked back to the shop where he had been
to rudely treated.
'1 say, mister, they say as how you sell
paper and write letters lor folks what can't
write. What will ye tax to write a letter
to my sister Sally V
'I shall charge you five shillings,' replied
the Englishman, softening his lone as his
government does since it has heard ol our
'Will re write jest what I tell ye, and
spell the words right, as we do in Varmont.'
inquired the Yankee.
'To be sure I will. I understand my
Well, I don't cate if ye du; 1 guess you
may write to Sally.'
The Londoner procureJ pen, ink and pa
per, and the Yankee commenced dictating
after the following style.
'Dear Sister Sally.'
'Hev you got that down ?'
' 'Rived in London last week.'
'Hev ye got that down and 6pelt right?
Yes eo on.
Thought I'd go into the country and take
Got (hat down right)
Yes, yes eo on, don't detain me so.

Yes, yes but you need not detain me so.
