" And a testament at my feet, And pen and ink at every side,
And 111 lie still and sleep.                                       so
" And go to the back of Maitland town,
Bring me my winding sheet; For it's at the back of Maitland town
That you and I shall meet."

The broom that makes full sore, A woman's mercy is very little,
But a man's mercy is more.
