A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR." Merry Christmas and happy Now Year! Here's a bundle of "little accounts And their bearers left word they'd be glad If you'd settle their little amounts. They've all got large sums" to make up," And cannot wait longer'they swear: So I wish you the joys of the season — Merry Christmas and happy New Year! Here's the doctor's—a horrid long bill- And he vows he's as badly as you; For his patients won't pay him a groat, And he's dying of Tick Doloreux. But he says he's consulted a friend, A lawyer that lives very near: So I wish you the joys of the season- Merry Christmas and happy New Year! The surgeon's is not a whit less; At its items I really shiver'd; A hundred for Sally's confinement; A hundred to Bill delivered." A hundred for mixtures and pills (I think its uncommonly dear): But I wish you the joys 06 the season- Merry Christmas and happy New Year! The baker has brought you a roll VVIiich will take you a month to digest: He looks most uncommonly crusty, And says that, of all trades, he's blest If a baker's is not the most kneady; And hints at John Dough; and I fear- But I wish you the joys pf the season- Merry Christmas an<J-flappy New Year! The poult'rer his G& £ ~»Bill" has brought: This year's—and last year's in addition. Twelve guineas for Black-cock alone, Which I think is a grouse imposition. Ten guineas for pheasants and hares! And he charges his ven'son as deer. But I wish you the joys of the season- Merry Christmas and happy New Year! Here's,your butcher—the ci.ty M.P.— Begs to "ax leave to bring in his bill." It takes up six folio pages: Good heavens! it's as long as a will. He says times are quite out of joint; And he must have the gash: so, my dear, I wish you the joys of the season- Merry Christmas and happy New Year! And, oh dear! here's a note from your steward! He says your estate he's been round, And examined your books and your papers, And you can't pay a crown in the pound. There's writs out against you by scores; You're surrounded by tipstaves and bums! So I wish you, my love, a good Christmas And-a happy New Year-when it comes! -Comic Almanack.
