Extract From Mrs. Rose’s Diary.

(After John Leech.)

At Brighton, just a year ago,1
As I was leaving Maison MUTTON,2
My scarf got caught, it vexed me so !3
On that tall Captain Rose’s button.4
I thought he’d think me too inane5
And awkward, that September sunny ;6
And now September’s come again,7
And now we’re married !— Aint it funny ? ’8
