Keeping A Promise

THUS, with kind words, Fairface cajoled his friend:

Dear Dick! on me thou may'st assured depend;

I know thy fortune is but very scant,

But never will I see my friend in want.

Dick soon in gaol, believed his friend would free him;

He kept his word,--in want he ne'er would see him!
