Lines in Praise of Mr. J. Graham Henderson Hawick

 Success to Mr J.
Graham Henderson, who is a good man, And to gainsay it there's few people can, I say so from my own experience, And experience is a great defence.
He is a good man, I venture to say, Which I declare to the world without dismay, Because he's given me a suit of Tweeds, magnificent to see, So good that it cannot be surpassed in Dundee.
The suit is the best of Tweed cloth in every way, And will last me for many a long day; It's really good, and in no way bad, And will help to make my heart feel glad.
He's going to send some goods to the World's Fair, And I hope of patronage he will get the biggest share; Because his Tweed cloth is the best I ever did see, In the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and ninety-three.
At the International Exhibition, and the Isle of Man Exhibition, He got a gold medal from each, in recognition Of his Scotch Tweeds, so good and grand, Which cannot be surpassed in fair Scotland.
Therefore, good people, his goods are really grand, And manufactured at Weensforth Mill, Hawick, Scotland; Where there's always plenty of Tweeds on hand, For the ready cash at the people's command.
Mr Tocher measured me for the suit, And it is very elegant, which no one will dispute, And I hope Mr Henry in Reform Street Will gain customers by it, the suit is so complete.
