Lamb
 
Mary had a little lamb
  Its fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went
  The lamb was sure to go.
        Mrs. Sarah J. Hale—Mary’s Little Lamb. First pub. in her Poems for our Children, 1830. Claimed for John Roulston by Mary Sawyer Tyler. Disproved by Mrs. Hale’s son, in Letter to Boston Transcript, April 10, 1889. Mrs. Hale definitely asserted her claim to authorship before her death.
