Quotation by John Milton Hay

We found it at last, an' a little shed
Where they shut up the lamb at night.
We looked in an' seen them huddled thar,
So warm an' sleepy an' white;
An' THAR sot Little Breeches an' chirped,
As peart as ever you see,
"I wants a chaw of terbacky,
An' that's what's the matter of me."
John Milton Hay (1838–1905), U.S. author, statesman. Little Breeches (l. 41–48). . .
