I don't agree to all The solemu dogmas of the rough ola stager , But. very much approve what one may cau The mlnor moráis of the "Ursa Major," Jolmson was rlght. Although some men adore Wisdom Ín women, and wlth wisdom cram lKT. There lsn't one Ín ten tmt thlnks (ar more Oí his own grub than hls spouse's grammar. I know It is t.he greatest shame Ín Ufe : But who ainong them, (save p crhaps, my sclf) Eeturnüig home, but asks hts wlte, What boeL- not books-she has upon the sheir? Though Greek and Latín be the lady's boast, They're Uttle valued by her loving mate ; The klncl oí tongue that husband's rellsli most Is modern, bolled and served upon a píate. Or If, as Iond ambltlon may command, Some home-made verse the happy matron show Dim, What mortal spouse but irom herdalnty hand Would sooner see a pudding tlian a poem?
