Excerpt

Milkmaid.

An Old Song exhibited & explained
in many designs by R. Caldecott.

A Lady said to her Son—a poor young Squire:

“You must seek a Wife with a Fortune!”

 

 

 

 

 

“Where are you going, my Pretty Maid?”

“I'm going a-milking, Sir,” she said.

 

 

 

 

“Shall I go with you, my Pretty Maid?”

“Oh yes, if you please, kind Sir,” she said.

 

 

 

“What is your Father, my Pretty Maid?”

 

 

“My Father's a Farmer, Sir,” she said.

 

 

“Shall I marry you, my Pretty Maid?”

“Oh thank you, kindly, Sir,” she said.

 

 

 

“But what is your fortune, my pretty Maid?”

“My face is my fortune, Sir,” she said.

 

 

 

“Then I can't marry you, my Pretty Maid!”

“Nobody asked you, Sir!” she said.

 

 

 

“Nobody asked you, Sir!” she said.

 

 

“Sir!” she said.

 

 

“Nobody asked you, Sir!” she said.
