107. Versified Reply to an Invitation
 
 
SIR,
Yours this moment I unseal,
  And faith I’m gay and hearty!
To tell the truth and shame the deil,
  I am as fou as Bartie:
But Foorsday, sir, my promise leal,        5
  Expect me o’ your partie,
If on a beastie I can speel,
  Or hurl in a cartie.
YOURS,

ROBERT BURNS.

MAUCHLIN, Monday night, 10 o’clock.
