A new invented little book.
For little boys and girls in it to look ;
And when they've read it through they'll say,
There money was not thrown away.

Tfo Strawberry.
A'..man in the wilderness asked of me,
How many strawberries grew in the
sea?
I gave him an answer the best  that I
could.
As many red  herrings grew  in the
.  wood,

Come my pretty boy to me,
And in this book yon soon shall see
Many stories that are-funny,
Besides a waggon-load of money ;
And in my book I have a drum,
For little boys if they will come.
 Be very good 1 do you crave,
Or my drum you shall not have.
To show you this in the last page,
It is the bird that's in the cage.

Here's the tailor with his sheers,
To cut off bad children's ears.
Now to be good if you'll begin,
You shall have this fine house for to
live in.

And who could e'er desire more,
Here is the key to lock the door.

Now when you're rich and in this hall,
You will have servants at your call:
And if another you should lack,
See here I've brought you a fine black j
Black enough you may soppose,
He smokes his pipe to warm hi3 nsse.

The next thing that you here may see.
Is the huntsman and his  jovial  company,
The horses swift and dogs as sure,
The hare runs swift she's just before:
When hunting's done it is there cry,
We are both hungry and dry.
9
And a thing I've brought here
It is a bottle of strong beer.

I had two pigeons fine and gay,
They flew from me the other day

11
But I have got them now secure,
I hope from me they'll go no more :
What wai the reason they did go,
I cannot tell, nor do I know ;
But another time for to begin,
Fve built a house to put them in.
Here we go up, up, up,
Here we go down, down, down ;
Here we go backward and forward,
And here we go round, round, round.

I had a little  white cow she gave a
can of milk,
I sold my little white cow, and bought
a gown of silk ;
There were three rows up, and three
rows down,
Stand back you saucy Jack you'] ruffle
all my gown.

See here the pretty tender lamb,
How it is bleating for its dam ;
It runs about disturb'd in mind,
Hoping soon its dam to find,
What more pleasure to us can yield,
Than to see the lambs  play  in  the
field.
O how delightful is the spring,
It is enough to please a king.
 14
1 he spring is come, the summer's nigh,
See here's the pretty butterfly :
She flies for food with speed you see,
When tired she rests upon a tree.

Here's the cock that crows in the morn
Here's a cow with a crooked horn.
 16
And lastly here's my servant John,
Who brushes my boots whilst I  have
them on.
