THE BEGGAR GIRL.
This little English ballad has enjoyed great popularity. Among other notices of it there is a minute account of its having been sung with a wonderful effect by a military officer at an anniversary dinner given at the sea-bathing infirmary, at Margate, in August, 1807.
The melody was composed by Piercy.
