«HOG, n. A bird remarkable for the catholicity of its appetite and serving to illustrate that of ours. Among the Mahometans and Jews, the hog is not in favor as an article of diet, but is respected for the delicacy and the melody of its voice. It is chiefly as a songster that the fowl is esteemed; the cage of him in full chorus has been known to draw tears from two persons at once. The scientific name of this dicky-bird is _Porcus Rockefelleri_. Mr. Rockefeller did not discover the hog, but it is considered his by right of resemblance.»

«And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; / Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; / Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; / Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.»
