Versified Reply To An Invitation
Sir, Yours this moment I unseal, And faith I'm gay and hearty! To tell the truth and shame the deil, I am as fou as Bartie: But Foorsday, sir, my promise leal, Expect me o' your partie, If on a beastie I can speel, Or hurl in a cartie. Yours, Robert Burns. Mauchlin, Monday night, 10 o'clock.
