I
When on board of the steamship
Florida ten thousand miles at sea
In dreams my thoughts often go back to the rocks of Carrickatee
For every being loves the land in where he was a child
The very savage loves the woods, the plains and prairie wild.

Of many places I could speak but I have not space just now
But there is none more worthy of a not than the gunroom and fear breige
Of friends I could not mention so numerous are they
And some I never will forget until I return to clay.
III
But one there was amongst them he fain would prove unkind.
