Excerpt

'Twas the Night before Christmas

[Illustration]

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

[Illustration]

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap,

[Illustration]

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
