Twelve cents worth of wit, or, Little stories for little folks, of all denominations [electronic resource] : Adorned with cuts. : Unhappy wit, like most mistaken things, atones not for the envy which it brings. So singeth that excellent poet Master Pope; and therefore, when you have read this Twelve cents worth of wit you would do well to buy Twelve cents worth of wisdom, which is much better, and may be had at the place where this is sold. Wit and wisdom should always be blended together; for, as Mrs. Margery Two-Shoes, observes, wit is folly, unless a wise man hath the keeping of it
