Popular verse on the subject of public houses, transcribed by 'M.B.C.', [Maggie B. Corcoran].

'The Publican's Alphabet

A is the Alehouse the turnpike to sin
B is the Bottle the liquer is in
C is the Cads in that bar room so merry
D is the Dupes that begins drinking sherry...

....Z is Zig Zag or Drinking Man's Stagger.'

Verses transcribed by Maggie Corcoran on the subject of public houses:

'Bee Hive Public House

It's in this hive we're all alive
Good liqueur makes us funny.
If you be dry step in and try
The flavour of our honey
Your bees are asps, they sting like wasps
Your liqueur is adulterated and anyone that
resorts this house their misery is completed. '
