H bMS Am 1118.95, Box 9

Did I but purpose to embark
     with thee
On the smooth surface of a
     Summer's Sea
While gentle zephyrs play in
     prosperous gales
And fortune's favors fill the
     swelling sails
But would forsake the ship ever
     makes the shore
When the winds whistle & the tempests
