Jopkins's Ghost.............. From “ Fun"
TIE KING OF BRENTFORD'S TESTAMENT.
W. M. THACKERAY. The noble king of Brentford
Was old and very sick, He summon'd his physicians
To wait upon him quick ; They stepp'd into their coaches
And brought their best physick.
With potion and with pill;
They could not cure his ill.
I'd better make my will."
The lawyer did obey;
Did make his heart full gay.
Would wish of me to-day?" " The doctors have belabour'd me
With potion and with pill :
O man of tape and quill!
I want to make my will.
