THE CARPENTER;

OR, THE DANGER OF EVIL COMPANY.

news THERE was a young West-country man,

1 A Carpenter by, trade, A skilful wheelwright too was he,

And few such waggons made. No man a tighter barn could build

Throughout his native town: Thro? many a village round was he

The best of workmen known.
His father left him what he had,

In sooth it was enough;
His shining pewter, pots of brass,

And all his household stuff.
A little cottage too he had,

For ease and comfort, plann'd;
And that he might not lack for aught,

An acre of good land.
A pleasant orchard too there was

Before his cottage door;
Of cider, and of corn likewise
He had a little store.
