Abstract
The subtitle of this forty-eight page pamphlet is A New Fairy Play for Vestry and School Entertainments with Appropriate and Easy Music for Young Voices. Also Original Recitations, Music, Motion Songs, &c., for School Exhibitions. Whew! I picked it up because it includes The Rabbit and Turtle in verse of indifferent quality on 43-44. This rabbit declares This poor snail gives me time for a nap,/So I will improve it by snoring. The moral is You can't always tell,/What comes of persistently trying. Many of the pamphlet's songs have detailed directions on the motions that are to accompany each line. To judge from the back cover, the authoress is quite a producer of original penny songs for public schools.
