Family Jars

Family Jars Engraved by S Angell after a picture by Francois Edouard Picot. (Image from http://www.intaglio-fine-art.com)

FAMILY JARS.

Jars of jelly, jars of jam,
Jars of potted beef and ham.
Jars of early goosberries nice,
Jars of mincemeat, jars of spice,
Jars of orange marmalade,
Jars of pickles, all home-made,
Jars of cordial elder wine,
Jars of honey superfine.
Would the only jars were these,
Which occur in families.

The Daily Sanduskian (Sandusky, Ohio) Aug 3, 1849
