90. ImpromptuOn a recent event. (Copyright in the Confederate States, secured.) Old Mason proud, and sly Slidell
Away to Europe cut their lucky,
Or thought they had, till sweet to tell,
The pair were bagged by Wilkes the plucky.
Wilkes brought them safely into port,
Despite John Bull's protest and swearina,
They thought Diplomacy their forte,
They'll find their fort will be--Fort Warren.
