MASTER FREDERICK LONGMAN
This year our Book for Christmas varies, Deals not with History nor Fairies (I can't help thinking, children, you Prefer a book which is not true). We leave these intellectual feasts, To talk of Fishes, Birds, and Beasts.
These though his aim is hardly steady These are, I think, a theme for Freddy! Trout, though he is not up to fly, He soon will catch- as well as I ! So. Freddy, take this artless rhyme, And be a Sportsman in your time!
