Story:

The following whimsical robbery lately took place at Dereham, in England. The poultry house of Mr. Wright was broken open, and robbed of six geese; the robbers leaving behind them a six pence, tied to the gander's neck, in a piece of paper, containing the following lines:

Mr. Wright,
I wish you good night
'Tis time for me to wander,
I've bought your geese,
At a penny a piece,
And left it with your gander.
