THE MINER'S LETTER(Kiss the Little Ones for Me)
Copyright, 1894, by Chas. W. Boughton.
Words by Capt J. W. Crawford. Music by Claud Marco.

Dearest Annie, I am thinking, while the night winds whisper low,
Of my little wife and babies, and my heart is all aglow, ?
For I've struck it in the gravel, And our home will soon be free,
So I write to tell you, darling, kiss the little ones for me.

Kiss the little ones for papa-tell them in their joy and glee
How I love the little darlings, kiss the little ones for me.

Tell our darlings it is twilight, while the shades of evening fall,
And I'm gazing on their shadows, on their baby faces small.
How I dwell upon each feature, full of love and ecstacy,
While I kiss our babies' pictures, kiss the little ones for me.-Refrain

Tell the little ones I'm coming, when they go to bed each night,
As they whisper "God bless papa," with their baby faces bright-
I have written to the banker-you have waited patiently-
While I dream of home, my Annie, kiss the little ones for me.-Refrain.
