8. FROM A MEETING OF THE COMMON COUNCIL.

 

This worthy man will soon be fifty . . . Sirs,
I think . . . in him such qualities we meet . . .
A patriot . . . it everywhere occurs . . .
A house we'll buy him . . . cheaply, all complete . . .
I've one for sale. . . His life is full of burrs;
Let his old age be jubilant and sweet. . .
Rank opposition noisily demurs :
"No house! But after him we'll name a street!"
