Saturday 4 July 1846


Past ten o'clock, oh dear what can
Have become of that tiresome, troublesome man?
But hark! A knock! Yes here he is,
I'd like to scratch that face of his!

Well Mr. Caudle, you're late again,
What keeps you out till half past ten?
Now I'm determined, come what may,
To find out where you've been today.

To FULLER's shop – a fine excuse
Come that won't do Sir, just produce
Some proof that won't admit of doubt,
For I'm resolved to find you out.

You knew – at least you ought to know,
That FULLER's shop is all the go,
For first rate clothing, ready made,
Well, for this once, I'll not upbraid.

For Caudle, you did wisely act,
To go to FULLER's – that's a fact;
If you had always acted thus
'Twould save us much unpleasant fuss.

NB Mr. Caudle advises all husbands to purchase their clothing at FULLER's, if they study peace and quietness, and dislike Curtain Lectures.
