Hotels. SOMERSET HOTEL. CHRISTMAS CAROL. Shearman, on eve of Christmas Day, Wishes his friends and brotherhood, And all the public hereaway, A Merry Christmas and health good ! Not alone for English Roast Beef And Plum Pudding singed with brandy, Does the “chef” (that cook-in-chief); With his science come in handy : Fish, lamb, chicken, ham, and peas green, Salads, jellies, pastry cool; From triumphs of the French cuisine , \ To good English gooseberry fool: Things that make your mouths to water, Throats to long for sparkling wine, Claret cup, and something shorter, With Havannah genuine ! Then a quiet game on green cloth, Hand at whist and so to bed. He that lives so’s never been sloth, Nor complains of aching head. Provided always food and tipple Be of first-rate quality, And the gourmand do not cripple Appetite by gluttony ! All this good for Christmas time, Careful Shearman has laid in ; Never in Arabian clime Better fare had Allah-deen ! Centrally stands the Somerset, For every place of note in town : Handy it lies to come and get A right good crown’s worth for a crown : Close to the Bank and railway station, Telegraph, Post, and Town Hall, Church of each denomination, Sawyers, Doctors, Tradesmen all— What need to describe in detail, All that Shearman here can hold Out to all, wholesale and retail, To become sheep of his fold ?
