  • Ofttimes when I put on my gloves,
    I wonder if I’m sane,
    For when I put the right one on,
    The right seems to remain
    To be put on, that is, ‘tis left;
    Yet if the left I don,
    The other one is left, and then
    I have the right one on.
    But still I have the left on right;
    The right one, though, is left
    To go right on the left right hand
    All right, if I am deft.

  • Captured at Yorktown: "55 pair leather gloves." These were almost certainly rough work gloves.
