Cape Cod A Jolly Inscription

The following inscription appeared over a chimney piece in a 17th century gentleman’s dining room:

To my Best my Friends are free,
Free with that, and free with me;
Free to pass the harmless joke,
And the tube sedately smoke;
Free to drink just what they please,
As at Home, and at their ease;
Free to speak, as free to think,
(No Informers with me drink)
Free to stay a Night or so,
And when uneasy free to go.
