From Mother Goose's melodies. : The only pure edition. Containing all that have ever come to light of her memorable writings, together with those which have been discovered among the mss. of Herculaneum, likewise every one recently found in the same stone box which hold [sic] the golden plates of the Book of Mormon. The whole compared, revised, and sanctioned, by one of the annotators of the Goose family. Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1833, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of Massachusetts ([1833]) (p. 22, with an illustration):
High diddle diddle,
The Cat and the Fiddle,
The Cow jumped over the Moon,
The little Dog laughed
To see the sport,
And the Dish ran away
With the Spoon.
