Satan and Arnold

From Diary of the American Revolution, Vol II.  Compiled by Frank Moore and published in 1859.

Quoth Satan to Arnold, My worthy good fellow,
I love you much better than ever I did;
You live like a prince, with Hal may get mellow,
But mind that you both do just what I bid.
Quoth Arnold to Satan, My friend do not doubt me,
I will strictly adhere to all your great views,
To you I’m devoted, with all things about me,
You’ll permit me, I hope, to die in my shoes.1
