Note: A recitation of a humorous ode to church ushers, probably composed by Ms. Williams. (Regarding the twice-repeated reference to the recitation as "a Dunbar," Chris Smith writes in Blues & Rhythm, No. 319, that this usage simply denotes "a poem suitable for recitation," and not necessarily a poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar. In this it is similar to the use of "a Doctor Watts" to refer to any instance of lined-out hymnody, whether composed by Dr. Watts or not.)
