Use the man that you wed like your fav'rite guitar;
Tho' music in both, they are both apt to jar;
How tuneful and soft from a delicate touch,
Not handled too roughly nor play'd on too much!

Garrick. When I said I would die a bachelor, I did not think I should live till I were married.


(Mich Ado about Nothing). - June 17.

My Turkey-slippers maun gae on,

My hose o' pearly blue ;
It's a' to please my ain gudeman,
For he's baith leal and true.

Scotch Song
To me more dear, congenial to my heart,
One native charm than all the gloss of art.

June 18.

As long as this harp can be wakened to love,

And that eye its divine inspiration shall be, They may talk as they will of their Edens above,

But this earth is the planet for you, love, and me.


She listens to my words, and seldom speaks-
Why need she speak when every glance replies ?

Westland Marston, LL.D.

June 17.

June 18. As fine as fivepence is her mien,

No drum was ever tighter ;
Her glance is as a razor keen,
And not the sun is brighter.

Old Epigram.
Of a comely countenance and grace was she,
Both by birth and parentage of high degree.

Mallet. June 20.

No jealousy their dawn of love o'ercast,

Nor blasted were their wedded days with strife ;
Each season look'd delightful as it passed
To the fond husband and the faithful wife.

One sacred oath hath tied
Our loves; one destiny our life shall guide ;
Nor wild, nor deep, our common way divide,

June 21,
Although his profits bring him clear
Almost a hundred pounds a year,
Keeps me of cash so short and bare
That I have not a gown to wear,
Except my robe and yellow sack
And this old lutestring on my back.

'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished—to wed—to marry.
