John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7821
AUTHOR:Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
QUOTATION:You have a daughter, Captain Reese,
Ten female cousins and a niece,
A ma, if what I’m told is true,
Six sisters and an aunt or two.


Now, somehow, Sir, it seems to me,
More friendly-like we all should be
If you united of them to
Unmarried members of the crew.
ATTRIBUTION:Captain Reese.
