Our Becky does.

--An English paper says that a young damsel who is engaged, and will shortly be united to a gallant son of Neptune, lately visited the Mariner's Church. During the sermon the pastor discoursed eloquently and with much earnestness of the dangers and temptations of the sailor. He concluded by asking. ‘"Is there one who thinks anything of him who wears a tarpaulin hat and blue jacket, or a pair of trousers made of duck? In short, is there one who cares aught for the poor sailor!"’ A little girl, a sister of the damsel, jumped up, and looking archly at her sister, said, in a tone loud enough for every one to hear, ‘"Yes, sir, our Becky does."’
