"There was an old man of the 'burgh" (1879)

        Popular poetry:
There was an old man of the 'burgh,

Who carried a nice little jurg;

And he sipped from it frequent,

Wrote things most indecent

'Bout the people who lived in the 'burgh.

"Village Notes." Lansingburgh Courier. January 24, 1879: 3 col 1.
