"Forgive me, Miss, I meant no harm:
Pray tell me, what's your name." She told him and he cried again,
"I know your brother, too, We've been friends for many years,
And he often speaks of you. He'll be so glad to see you,
And if you'll only wed, I'll take you to him as my wife
For I love you since you said:
"My mother is a lady,
As yours, no doubt you'll allow, And you may have a sister
Who needs protection now. I came to this great city
To find a brother dear, You'd not dare insult me, sir,
If Jack were only here."
