OUR FAMILIAR SONGS.
DRINK TO ME ONLY WITH THINE EYES.
This song, from a poem entitled " The Forest," by Ben Jonson, the English dramatist (1574-1637), is translated from Philostratus, a Greek poet of the second cen­tury. The air is from Mozart, and is the same as that to which " County Guy" is sung.
