APPENDIX
THE "LOST BABS"

The following Bab Ballads were printed in Fun, but were not included
in any of the collections made by Gilbert.


PRINCE IL BALEINE

When autumn boat and train
Bore London folk to pleasure,
The good Prince Il Baleine
He sought, across the main,
Amusement for his leisure.

A dusty time, and long,
He'd had at balls and races,
At crowded levee throng,
At play and concert song,
And various other places.
