This then the tale will tell, How the Lieut, suppliantly fell ; Asking forgiveness for a duel undone, Ere he his life ' s course should run. It read as follows : Dear " Puss. " I send you a little bit of penciling, to meet your charming gaze. The bearer wishes to wear my ring, and for the fun of it, I have sent her to you for your kind permission. It is with great pleasure I give this introduc- tory note to her to present to you. And I hope that she will meet " a friend indeed, " as has been my experience. Yours as usual, " CHARLIE.

Cutter.— This terror of women ' s hearts, With tightened grip his moustache twirls ; For he ' s given up the Human Race, And now seeks for other worlds. 83
