Betsy my ole woman with
whom rye had so many ups and
downs over lifes uneven ways
for a third ot a century hardly
i looked natural my possum dogs
voice seemed somewhat shattered
and my oust happy dimocrat na
bors all wore long and saddened
countenances and they didnt i
ni iet me on my return with that
I warm grasp and pleasant smile so
usual neither did my favorite
rooster crow so loud and cheerful
Now I tell you mister editor some
thing has went rong radically roig
but we air often doomed to sad

is ov but few days and full ov
trouble and I never read ov but
one man living or cead that was
not born of woman Adam and
he didnt always have smooth sail

I have ofen thot we could live as
well and have fewer troubles if we
had smaller politix but somehow i
we will sailor drift the way our
I faces are first sot by the fathers
Well Christmas fully come and
