“I lay at the foot of the bed because Isabella said I disturbed her by continual fighting and kicking, but I was very dull, and continually at work reading the ” Arabian Nights,” which I could not have done if I had slept at the top.”
” I love in Isa’s bed to lie,
Oh such a joy and luxury !
The bottom of the bed I sleep,
And with great care within I creep;
Oft I embrace her feet of lillys,
But she has goton all the pillys.
Her neck I never can embrace,
But I do hug her feet in place.”
