Slide set: One winter night (recitation: Bamforth & Co., 9 slides, 1891)

Descriptive data for this set (listed below slide images)
Slide 1
Ragged, wretched, worn and weary, / Come the casuals, creeping in
Slide 2
Here, through all the long night watches, / Want and woe can rest their heads
Slide 3
Look where lies a woman sleeping, / Moaning even in her rest
Slide 4
(Effect) Faint and footsore, broken-hearted, / Cold and hunger did their work
Slide 5
(Effect) And he cried, 'O God, have mercy / On my darlings when I'm dead!'
Slide 6
Sits among the poor who worship / In the sittings labelled 'Free'
Slide 7
And a homeless creature totters / From God's temple with the rest
Slide 8
She is lost upon the moorland / Daylight's last faint glimmer fled
Slide 9
'Go, O baby dear!' she murmurs, / 'From my breast, all cold and dry'
