KATYS LETTER.
By Lady Dufferin.

Och, girls dear, did you ever hear
I wrote my love a letter.
And although he cannot read,
I thought 'twas all the better;
For why should he be puzzled
With hard spelling in the matter,
When the waning was so plain
That I loved him faithfully,
And he knows it-oh, he knows it-
Without one word from me.

wrote it, and I folded it,
And put a seal upon it,
'Twas a seal almost as big
As the crown of my best bonnet;
For I would not have the postmaster
Make his remarks upon it,
As I'd said inside the letter
That I loved him faithfully,
And he knows it-oh, he knows it-
Without one word from me.

My heart was full, but when I wrote
I dare not put it half in,
The neighbors know I love him,
And they're mighty fond of chaffing;
So I dare not write his name outside,
For fear they would be laughing,
So I wrote: "From little Kate to one
Whom she loves faithfully,"
And he knows it-oh, he knows it-
Without one word from me.

Now, girls, would you believe it,
That postman, so consated.
No answer will he bring me.
So long as I have waited;
But maybe there may'nt be one
For the rason that I stated,
That my love can neither read nor write,
But loves me faithfully,
And I know where'er my love is,
That he is true to me.
