A Present for Infants : or Pictures for the Nursery

Little Girl and Pitcher.


TAKE care, little girl, that you do not fall into the water; for if once you fell in, you could not get out again, unless somebody happened to come to your assistance. When you are sent by your mother to fetch water, you should be careful how you dip your jug in; and after it is filled, you should go steadily home, without playing by the way.



Sheep and Lambs.


Dearest Fanny, come to me,

Take and eat my sweet grass here;

Once you never us'd to flee,

When with joy I did appear.


But now, your lambkin by your side

Takes all your thoughts and all your care;

I may go, and run, and ride,

You are careless how, or where.



Man and Ass.


"Turnips, cabbages, carrots, Ho! Now try, Ma'am; I dare say you and I can agree upon a price for this bunch of turnips: they were fresh gathered this morning, I assure you; and I think if you buy of me once, you will never buy of any body else.—Pray, Ma'am, try my fine, fresh codlins. They are very cheap, and as large as you can get any where."
