L, LOUIS LIVELY, of cherub-like smile,

Can well of dull care all his comrades beguile;

At home or abroad, in our school, or at play,

He’s affable, friendly, good-humour’d and gay ;

Yet sometimes most gravely this lad takes the chair,

And settles disputes like a Judge or Lord Mayor !

M is MARK MEANWELL, severe in reproof,

From whom Master Gossip had long kept aloof;

George wore a black clolce that was losing its dye,

Mark offer’d a substitute then to supply,

A black of firm jet, that would strike all beholders,

‘What’sthat?’ Throw your character over your shoulders!M
