A Bachelor’s Hope for Leap Year

You may wrangle and rave of your Marysville girls,
   Of the girls of the Capital City,
Of the 'Frisco girls, with their fads and their curls,
   But the Butte Creek girls are most pretty.
Their smiles are far dearer to me than the gold
   That the millionaire hides in his coffers,
And I hope, 'ere the days of this leap year are told,
   Some dear one will make me an offer.
                                 Pres Longley, 1892
