The New Book of Nonsense was published for sale at the Philadelphia Great Central Sanitary Fair, which ran from June 7 to June 29, 1864. It is an imitation of Edward Lear’s Book of Nonsense.
My good Southern Brother look here, one thing to my mind is quite clear-
If we put out this Furness, it no longer will burn us,
Nor warm little darkies up here.
