FOREWORD


    (_After a writer of_ A.D. 1707)

    I'm amused at the signs
    As I pass through the town,
    To see the odd mixtures:
    A Magpie and Crown,
    The Whale and the Crow,
    The Razor and Hen,
    The Leg, Seven Stars,
    The Scissors and Pen,
    The Axe and the Bottle,
    The Tun and the Lute,
    The Eagle and Child,
    The Shovel, The Boot.
