A frolicsome wight is he;
And he said to himself," I'll go,
And whistle along, as a sort of a bead, •
For those ladies who'd like a better, you know,
But hare to take up with . me."
Old Winter indulged in his schemes of bliss
Till he fairly shook with glee . ; •
" 0 !" says he to himself," what a capital kiss
I'll have on the cheek of the pert yountmiss,

he had subjected his daughter even to the

by being confined occasionally to his "house,

in this thought,. perhaps enough for an

are. called by their business during-the day
1-mostly away from home, returning only at
the hours for meals, and as they then., see
