Excerpts:

Cold Pastoral

When old age shall this generation waste
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say’st:


FLAMMABLE. DO NOT APPLY NEAR FLAME
OR WHILE SMOKING. USE
ONLY AS DIRECTED.
AVOID GETTING IN EYES.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
How to Use: Apply to face and neck after shaving.
