Hurree Chunder Mookerjee, pride of Bow Bazaar,
Owner of a native press, "Barrishter-at-Lar,"
Waited on the Government with a claim to wear
Sabres by the bucketful, rifles by the pair.

They are safer implements, but, if you insist,

Bought the tubes of Lancaster, Ballard, Dean, and Bland,
Bought a shiny bowie-knife, bought a town-made sword,

Chimbu Singh from Bikaneer, Tantia the Bhil;

Nubbee Baksh Punjabi Jat, Abdul Huq Rafiq-
