Excerpt from An Angler's Strange Experiences: A Whimsical Medley, and an of-Fish-All Record Without a-Bridge-Ment A Fisher-poet, like a fisher cunning, I seek to pay expenses by my punning, (For, when you think what Art will yet take off it, How can a book like this yield much of profit?And guilty publishers take gilt, they say, Off author's gingerbread: - not mine, I pray!)And, wanting fishers all to buy my book, I sought a name wherewith to bait my hook, One that, alike for sport and persons' sake.Would with the angling tribe be sure to take, And therefore sought wherewith this hook to bait, Such patron in a Minister of State. "In such, an angler find?" said some; "go tryTo find in August, sir, a real May fly: Go, seek to rise a grayling with a midgeBeneath the middle arch of London Bridge!A statesman, Cotswold, to endorse your puns!He'll send you back the bluest of blue duns.""Is not," said I, "the Master of the PostA master of the Rod?" No time was lost;I sought him. Though, alas! he could not see, He felt, as I expected, sympathy: Rare sympathy with fishers and their artWas in his hand and in his kindly heart - About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
