  [HERE IS OLD ABE.]  
 
 
Yankee Notions
 
January 01, 1862
   
 
  Here is Old Abe, whom the Southerners swore They'd murder if ever he touched Baltimore; 'Twas a year ago, though, since they hatched up this plot And since then they've been touched in a very sore spot; In New York he imprisoned their F. F. V. traitors, And fed them on bread, water, fish and potatoes, And although so reviled at, 'twas his willing hand That brought Baltimore back to a real merry land.
