And as I had seeing of them all there, I did have thinks to have a choir. First I did sing, " Sanctus, sanetus, sanctus, Dominus Deus ." After I did sing it three times, I did have thinks as how it would be nice to have more in the choir. And I did have remembers as how to-morrow is the going-away day of Philippe III, roi de France; and so for the forty years that were his years I did bring forty more potatoes in a row. That made more in the choir. Then I did sing three times over, " Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritu Sancto. Hosanna in excelsis ." Before I did get all through the last time with Hosanna in excelsis, I did have thinks as how the next day after that day would be the borning day of Louis Philippe, roi de France, and the going-away day of Alfred Tennyson. And I did bring more potatoes for the choir. Seventy-six I did so bring for the years that were the years of Louis Philippe, roi de France. Eighty-three I so did bring for the years that were the years of Alfred Tennyson. And the choir - - there was a goodly number of folks in it - - all potato folks wearing brown robes. Then I did sing one "Ave Maria."
