They'll sell to my Grief
As cheap as Neck-beef,
And every Day
Your Children may play
Come hither and try,
I'll teach you to buy
Come ; Three-pence a Score,
I ask you no more,
When Tradesmen have Gold,
The Thief will be bold,
My Copper is such,
No Robber will touch,
The little Black-guard
Who gets very hard
When his Pockets are cramm'd
With mine, and be d ’d, He may swear he has nothing to lose.
Here's * The Drapicr’s Printer.
Here's Halfpence in Plenty, !
For one you'll have twenty,
Your Neighbours will think,
When your Pocket cries Chink,
You will be my Thankers,
I'll make you my Bankers,
But my pretty Brass,
I'm a Son of a Whore,
If I have a Word more
If my Coin will not pass,
I must die like an Ass, And so I conclude my Petition.

Mr. Yafon Hasard, à Woollen-Drapier in
Dublin, put up the Sign of the GOLDEN Fleece, and desired a Motto in Verse. ZASON, the valiant Prince of Greece,
From Colchos brought the Golden Fleece: We comb the Wool, refine the Stuff, For modern Yafons, that's enuff. . Oh! could we tame yon watchful Dragon, ... Old Fafon would have less to brag on. Q 2

VERSES cut by two of the Dean's Friends upon a Pane of Glass in one of his Parlours. A BARD on whom Phæbus his Spirit
bestow'd, Resolving t’acknowledge the Bounty he ow'd, Found out a new Method at once of confefsing, And making the most of so mighty a Blessing; To the God he'd be grateful, but Mortals he'd
chouse, By making his Patron preside in his House, And wisely foresaw his Advantage from thence, That the God wou'd in Honour bear most of th’ Expence : :
