Boothby: The Fuller and the Collier

Let fitness guide your inclination:
Suit your companions to your station.
A Collier offer'd to receive
A Fuller, forc'd his house to leave:
"Thank you, my friend;" the Fuller said,
"But what would happen to my trade,
If what all morning I make white,
Your coal-dust must make black at night?"
