THE BELLMAN'S SPEECH.                         23
It will sigh like a thing that is deeply dis­tressed : And it always looks grave at a pun.
"The fourth is its fondness for bathing-machines,
Which it constantly carries about, And believes that they add to the beauty of scenes-------
A sentiment open to doubt.

To describe each particular batch : Distinguishing those that have feathers, and bite,
From those that have whiskers, and scratch.
