A Riddle

The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser
Saturday 26 March 1803

RIDDLE ON THE VOWELS

We are little airy creatures,
All of different voice and features :
One of us in GLASS is set,
One of us you'll find in JET ;
T'other you may see in TIN,
And the fourth a BOX within ;
If the fifth you should pursue,
It can never fly from YOU.
