RICHARD HARRIS BARHAM
English divine and humorous writer, author of Ingoldsby Legends
(1788 - 1845)

He won't, won't he? Then bring me my boots.
      - [Proverbs]

I was between
  A man and a boy, A hobble-de-hoy,
    A fat, little, punchy concern of sixteen.
      - Aunt Fanny [Youth]

In brief, I don't stick to declare, Father Dick,
  So they call him for short, is a regular brick;
    A metaphor taken--I have not the page aright--
      From an ethical work by the Stagyrite.
      - Brothers of Birchington [Character]

The Jackdaw sat in the Cardinal's chair!
  Bishop and Abbot and Prior were there,
    Many a monk and many a friar,
      Many a knight and many a squire,
        With a great many more of lesser degree,--
          In sooth a goodly company;
            And they served the Lord Primate on bended knee.
              Never, I ween,
                Was a prouder seen,
                  Read of in books or dreamt of in dreams,
                    Than the Cardinal Lord Archbishop of Rheims.
      - Ingoldsby Legends--The Jackdaw of Rheims
        [Jackdaws]

He was such a dear little cock-tailed pup.
      - Mr. Peter's Story [Dogs]

Thrice happy's the wooing that's not long adoing.
  So much time is saved in the billing and cooing.
      - Sir Rupert the Fearless [Wooing]

'Tis not her coldness, father,
  That chills my labouring breast;
    It's that confounded cucumber
      I've ate and can't digest.
      - The Confession [Eating]

Right as a trivet.
      - The Ingoldsby Legends--Auto-da-fe [Right]
