June 13th, 1877
The rain in torrents doth come down
To wash the dirt from all our crowns
So if for us you've an atom of pity,
Do send we up from your big city
A lots of clean clothes- 'nuff for a week
For the dirt! We're into it deep!
Here we're shored on the St. John's River
Unfortunate victims to unpleasant weather
Away from home, all hometies we sever
It may ve for years and it may be forever!
If in the morning it's pleasant and bright
We should stay here more than tonight
So now we'll retire and in the morning
Ever so early, yes at dawning
Full of trust hope and great expectations
With baskets replete with necessary rations
We'll hie to Jacksonville in Little Annie
To greet you dear and kiss old mammy.
E. B. K.
