skirls, which they had great trouble in
managing when the dancing com

verse, and all very ingenious. One clevei
little woman who can sketch ab well as
rhjme, adorned the top of a note sheet
with an etching of an elf and a robin
warming themselves around a wood tire,
and said, (with reference to the words of
What a list of thuiirs iiiim-cii.

Nor should wo fear e'en witches screech
If Happy Hollow wo might reach.
