Hannah More to Dr Carrick
Dear Friend, you thought it right and Meet
To send a Cushion for my Feet.
Far be the thought of such disgrace!
I’ll make it know its proper place:
Indeed it better suits my feeling
To dedicate your gift to kneeling;
Nor will my thoughts too widely stray
Though I for you and yours may pray
Forgive this inroad on your time;
From, Yours in Prose, and yours in Rhyme.
