HISTORY OF THE FAN
Carrying in right hand in front of face Follow me
Carry in left hand Desirous of an acquaintance
Placing it on left ear You have changed
Twirling in left hand I wish to get rid of you
Drawing across forehead We are watched
Carrying in right hand You are too willing
Drawing through hand I hate you
Twirling in right hand I love another
Drawing across cheek I love you
Closing it I wish to speak to you
Drawing across eyes I am sorry
Resting it on right cheek Yes
Resting it on left cheek No
Open and shut You are Cruel
Drooping We will be friends
Fanning slowley I am married
Fanning Fast I am engaged
Handle to lips Kiss me
Shut I have changed my mind
Open Wide Wait for me
