Arrived at Caen, the travellers here Before the chief Hotel appear, Miss Earle, Rose, Bertie you descry— The rest are coming by-and-by.
Monsieur le Maitie, who rubs his hands And says, "What are Monsieur's commands?" With scrape and bow, again you see— The most polite of men is he.
Monsieur le Maitre, with scrape and bow, Stands ready to receive them now, And Madame with her blandest air, And their alert Commissionaire.
