A Hint for a Thimble?

Daily Central City (CO) Register,
22 December 1869: Issue 127, col. C.

In case clipping shown above is too illegible, the little "poem" says:

I send a thimble for fingers nimble,
Which I hope will fit you when you try it;
It will last you long, if it's half as strong
As the hint that you gave me to buy it.
