Seite 2 - Woodman, spare that tree ! Touch not a single bough ; In youth it sheltered me, And I'll protect it now. 'Twas my forefather's hand That placed it near his cot ; There, woodman, let it stand, Thy ax shall harm it not.

Seite 4 - But with our industry we must likewise be steady, settled, and careful, and oversee our own affairs with our own eyes, and not trust too much to others; for, as Poor Richard says, I never saw an oft-removed tree, Nor yet an oft-removed family, That throve so well as those that settled be.
