A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO MY FRIENDS

IN NEW YORK.

I wish you all a sweet New Year

A happy, happy day;
The smiles of Peace, and Love, and Cheer,

Though I am far away.

May Sixty-Six bring treasures rare

Joys yet to you unknown-
And may ye reap without a tare,

Tenfold what ye have sown !

I cannot clasp your loving hands

As I've been wont to do,
But I will send from foreign lands

This New Year's Gift to you.

Receive it kindly: I regret

The gems unworthy are
The casket wherein they are set-

And of your fostring care.

STELLA.

LONDON, 23 Oct, 1865.
