This poem was given to me by a fellow apprentice on the 22d of March, 1806, about the time of my departure from my native country to America, to which country I expect never to return.
JOHN FERGUSON, JUN.
Duns, Berwickshire, Scotland.
Written by a brither Scott,
That he near may be forgot.
A lang farewell unto you, Johnnie,
An always free.
Though o'er the sea.
Lang hae we been twa comrades dear,
Start to mine eye,
Maun o're the sea.
Weel, since ye will nae langer stay,
And may you thrive
While ye're alive.
An when yo cross the raging Ocean,
'Till yo arrive
Like them to thrive,
