'ARRY AT 'ARRYGATE.

[Illustration]

DEAR CHARLIE,--Rum mix this 'ere world is, yer never know _wot_'ll
come next!
Don't emagine I've sent yer a sermon, and treacle this out as my
text;
But really life's turn-ups are twisters. You lay out for larks,
'ealth, and tin,
But whenever you think it's "a moral," that crock, "Unexpected,"
romps in.

Who'd ha' thought of _me_ jacking up suddent, and giving the
Sawbones a turn?
Who'd ha' pictered _me_ "Taking the Waters"? Ah! CHARLIE, 'twos
hodds on the Urn
With Yours Truly, this time, I essure you. I fancied as
Tot'nam-Court Road
Would he trying its 'and on my tombstone afore the green corn wos
full growed.

_Bad_, CHARLIE? You bet! 'Twas screwmatics and liver, old Pill-box
declared.
Knocked me slap orf my perch, fair 'eels uppards. I tell you I
felt a bit scared,
And it left me a yaller-skinned skelinton, weak, and, wot's wus,
stoney-broke.
If it hadn't a bin for my nunky, your pal might have jest done a
croak.

Uncle NOBBS, a Cat's-butcher at Clapton, who's bin in luck's way,
and struck ile,
Is dead nuts on Yours Truly. Old josser, and grumpy, but _he_'s
made his pile.
Saw me settin' about in the garden, jest like a old saffron-gill'd
ghost
A-waiting for cock-crow to 'ook it, and hanxious to 'ear it--a'most.
