REAR-ADMIRAL HERCULES ROBINSON.

Ever drifting, drifting, drifting,

On the shifting
Currents of the restless main,
Till at length in coves and reaches-

Of sandy beaches-
All have found repose again.

Ever drifting, drifting, drifting,

On the shifting
Currents of the restless heart,
Till at length in books recorded,

They, like hoarded
Household words, no more depart, LONGFELLOW.

T. HINTON AND CO., 80, QUEEN STREET.

LONDON: F. PITMAN, 20, PATERNOSTER ROW; AND ALL BOOKSELLERS.
