Remember, my boys, remember,
No run is allowed at “The Jug”;
And the private rooms, in December,
Are decidely cool, though snug!

Whoever finds winter quarters there,
Will remember the 5th for the future, I’ll swear;
On the “tottle of the whole”, Then,
Twere best to avoid the din”.

Let every one of the bold men,
Keep fast his doors within;
Lest he find too late when regrets of no use,
For the sake of a Fawkes he’s been made a great goose.

Peter Bacon, The Sussex Advertiser, 2nd November 1847.
