Excerpt

honourable boys
Will act like Dick and Bryan.

POLITENESS

Good little boys should never say,
"I will," and "Give me these";
Oh no! that never is the way,
But, "Mother, if you please."

And, "If you please," to sister Anne,
Good boys to say are ready;
And, "Yes, sir," to a gentleman,
And, "Yes, ma'am," to a lady.

RICHARD'S REFORMATION

Miss Lucy was a charming child,
She never said, "I wont";
If little Dick her playthings spoil'd
She said, "Pray, Dicky, don't."

He took her waxen doll one day,
And bang'd it round and round;
Then tore its legs and arms away,
And threw them on the ground.

His good mamma was angry quite,
And Lucy's tears ran down;
But Dick went supperless that night,
And since has better grown.

JAMES'S SACRIFICE

Little James, full of play,
Went shooting one day,
Not thinking his sister was nigh;
The arrow was low
