Charles Augustus Fortescue, Who always Did what was Right, and so accumulated an Immense Fortune.

The nicest child I ever know
Was Charles Augustus Foretescue.
He never lost his cap, or tore
His stockings or his pinafore:
In eating Bread he made no Crumbs,
He was extremely fond
if sums,

To which, however, he pre-
The Parsing of a Latin
We sought, when it was in
his power,
For information twice and hour
And as for finding Mutton-Fat
Unappetizing, far from that!
He often, at his Father’s Board,
Would beg them, of his own accord,

To give him, if they did not mind,
The Greasiest Morsels they could find-
His Later Years did no belie
The Promise of his Infancy

In Public Life he always tried
To take a judgment Broad and Wide;

In Private, non was more than he
Renowned for quiet courtesy.
He rose once in his Career
And long before his Fortieth Year
Had wedded
Only Child
Of Bunyand, First Lord Aberfyld.
He thus became immensely Rich,
And build the Splendid Mansion which
Is called
“The Cedars Muswell Hill,”
Where he resides in Affluence still
to show what Everybody might
become by
