LONDON.

MDCCCXXXI.

[blocks in formation]

TO

THE BRITISH NATION,

THE FOLLOWING POEM

IS, BY THE AUTHOR, MOST HUMBLY AND RESPECTFULLY INSCRIBED,

IN ADMIRATION

OF THAT PROUD PRE-EMINENCE WHICH HIS COUNTRYMEN

HAVE SO LONG, SO NOBLY MAINTAINED;

AND,

HOWEVER TEMPESTUOUS MAY BE THE ASPECT OF THE TIMES,

IN THE CONFIDENT HOPE, THAT,

BY THE BLESSING OF DIVINE PROVIDENCE,

AND UNDER THE DOMINION OF A ROYAL RACE

WHO SO JUSTLY FEEL WHAT CONSTITUTES TRUE GLORY,

THESE REALMS,

SECURE IN THE POSSESSION OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND GREAT,

MAY FLOURISH TO LATEST POSTERITY,

AN EXAMPLE TO THE WAVERING, A BEACON TO THE BENIGHTED,

A REFUGE TO THE CALAMITOUS.
