Office Preston MOO.
A thin of beauty p a. Joy forever; . " .
Its loveliness increases;' H will never
Pass Into- nothtncaeaa. but atil will keep v
A bower quiet for us and a Bleep
Full of aweet dreajna and health and quiet breathing.
Therefore on every morrow are we wreathing
A flowery band to bind ua to the earth.
Spit of despondence of the inhuman dearth
Of nob la natures of the gloomy days.
Of all the unhealthy and o'er-darkened ways
Made for our searching. Tea in apite of all.
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
From our dark spirits. .

ness pf gettin a hall wuld cost a lot of
jack. He aed yep they wuldnt fall for a
skeeme like that
I sed well then sinct they cant get all
