He said, he was locked up three stories high, (7)

And though his love was strong,
How often a female Foot will slip!

A Love could not well out of window fly,
How oft in its path will a spark lie!

· That had ran on FOOTE so long.
The Foore that I sing made a terrible Trip,

At the same time, he argued stoutly by letter,
For she tripped against Colonel BERKELEY.

How clear the difference stood
This FootE trod the stage at Cheltenham one night,

'Twixt not wishing to part with one's FootE altogether, Where the Colonel began his wooing

And being tied by it for good.
He acted, that night, for her Benefit,

Now this last proposition some little dispute
But after for her undoing. (1) ,

Between the parties bred,
For this gay deceiver formed full soon

And he found to his cost more brains in his FOOTE
(How I wish such connections were fewer !)-

Than ever he had in his head.
With our FootE what some call a Liâison,

For full soon by his letters 'twas made to appear,
And some an Affaire du Coeur.

That wedlock he did devise once,
I don't know how a Colonel he came to be;

And very silly those letters were
But all people did compute,
That no Colonel was he of Cavalry,

The Colonel's were not very wise ones. (8)
Since he took a command of Foote.

And now our Foote kicked more and more,
Now some gallant Colonels that I have known,

And sought for satisfaction
From Spain and from Waterloo,

By costs at Law, for though wounded sore,
Have returned with much glory on one Foot alone

It by no means hurt her action,
Having set out with two;

So in the King's Bench she urged her suit,
But a different career our Colonel ran,

And in evidence showed very clearly,
And wondrous it was to see,

That although he had been pretty sure of Foote,
For he with only one Foote began,

He of late had become FootE-weary.
Bat in time was blessed with threo. (2).

And Mr. HAINE he defended the same,
So then the first Foore, when the other two came,

All like an unblushing varlet,
Gave the Colonel to understand,

And he showed no sign of grace or shame,
That the least he could do, in return for the same,

Although his Counsel was SCARLETT ;
Was to offer her his hand.

Who in this wise pleaded his cause" My Lord,
But the Colonel's objection seemed to be,

“ And Gentlemen of the Jury,
lo so doing he saw very well,

“ The Foote that is plaintiff in this record, That in taking a Foote that ends with TE,

“ Is a cloven foot, I assure ye: He might chance to end with an L.

“ And, since past and gone is Michaelmas day, Now just at this time came a second lover

“ All the world would surely cry. Fie on'i!' With a little more money than brain,

“ If with this Foote together your heads you should lay, Which fact our FootE did right soon discover,

“ To dish such a Goose as my Client." (9) And the gentleman's name was HAINE. He had lost at Newmarket sums so large,

But the Jury were very hard to persuade,

Since Defendant seemed of fair age,
That at length he grew angry, and swore
He could live with one Foote at a lesser charge

Though it was a sad job, the CHIEF JUSTICE said,
Than he'd done with the Legs before.

To be bound by a promise of marriage. (10)
