Charles Graham Halpine AKA Miles OReilly 1829 (Meath, ) – 1868 ( New York)




LAURA
On me he shall ne'er put a ring,
So, mamma, 'tis in vain to take trouble,
For I was but eighteen in spring
While his age exactly is double.

MAMMA
He's but in his thirty-sixth year,
Tall, handsome, good-natured and witty,
And should you refuse him, my dear,
May you die an old maid without pity!

LAURA
His figure, I grant you, will pass,
And at present he's young enough plenty;
But when I am sixty, alas!
Will not he be a hundred and twenty?
