1903 The Complete Buffet Guide or How to Mix All Kinds of Drinks by V.B. Lewis

T oasts and A ft er Dinner Speeches


Charity-A link from the ch ain that angels wear:.

The nimble penny-May it soon grow into a dime and then swell into a dolla r.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone.

Our American Boys-Who h ave arms for their girls, and arms for their country 's foes.

Brisk wine and lovely women are The source of all our joys ; A bumper softens every care And beauty never cloys . Then let us drink,- and let us love While yet our hearts are gay; Women and wine_we all approve, As blessing night and day. Which is the properest day to drink? Saturday , Sunday, Monday? Each is the properest day, I think; Why should I name but one day? Tell me but yours, I will mention my day, Let us fix on some day; Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. Come, fill the bowl, each jolly soul, Let Bacchus guide our revels; Join cup to lip, with hip, hip, hip, And bury the blue devils.
