MARY. "Did you never, Julia, See it work before? Try it once, you'll surely Use it evermore ; Such a little treasure Ne'er before was seen, Oh ! 'tis such a pleasure Sewing by machine!" JULIA. "Isn't it delicious?

How the needle flies!

I can scarce its movement Follow with my eyes ! How it goes, like lightning, Flashing through that seam! Mary, dear, I almost

Fancy it a dream."

While I sit and sing; Lightly as a feather On it goes apace,

Through the toughest leather

Or the finest lace."

MARY. "Let it be like mine, then,

Julia, take advice; None that I have seen yet

Are one half so nice; Some won't keep in order- Needles snap in two—Causing botheration, Spite of all you do.

"Nobody but FINKLE

AND LYON, in this town,

Can produce another Equal to my own;

I will choose one, Julia, With you, any day,
