My dear young friend whose shining
Fire Sets wild a whole community,
Whate'er you do, wbere'er you go,
Don't lose your opportunity.
In this grand State and Parish, too.
There is a chance on every band,
And while you are looking round you,
Remember Hamley sells the land.
If of land you have a plenty,
Perhaps much more than you can stand,
And if you want to raise the wind,
Remember Ilan.ley sells the land.
And don't forget with all its faults,
This is a grand community,
tT And to every man that lives here
ASt Comes at least one opportunity,
CE And when you come to town to trade,
We will take this chance to mention,
Whether you want to buy or sell,
Hamley will be all attention.
