  • First sentence: "Ye parents, who have labour'd long T'instruct your tender youth; But find their evil passions strong Rebel against the truth; And after many sighs and tears, And many an earnest prayer, While no faint beam of hope appears, Are yielding to despair; Come, listen to my simple tale, - Let not your hope expire; God, when your expectations fail, May grant your heart's desire."
  • Includes 1 woodcut.
