‘Stead of bothering you, and sharing your prison beds and fetters,
We'll write each mail from Europe the most delightful letters:
Tell you of all we've done and seen, at party, ball, or play,
To cheer your hearts, poor martyrs to Cotton and C. S. A.”

So the two vessels parted; the San Jacinto went
To unload her precious cargo, while the captain of the “Trent”
Having lost a (probable) douceur which had seemed within his grip,
We presume, for consolation, retired and took a nip.
The ladies talked of the affair less with a tear than smile--
Their lords and masters took their way to Warren's Fort the while:
And gratis lodged and boarded there, they may think for many a day
That brains are sometimes northward found as well's in the C. S. A.
