PROLOGUE.

IN ancient times, when Britain's trade was army,
And the lov’d music of her youth, alarms;
4 godlike race sustain’d fair England's fame:
Who has not heard of gallant Pie Rcy’s name 2.
Ay, and of Do U G LAs Such illustrious foes
In rival Rome and Carthage never rose /
From age to age bright shone the British fire,
And ev'ry hero was a hero's sire.
When powerful fate decreed one warrior's doom,
Up sprung the phaenix from his parent's tomb.
But whilst those generous rivals fought and fell,
Those generous rivals lov’d each other well:
Tho' many a bloody field was lost and won, -
Nothing in hate, in honour all was done.
When Piercy 'wrong’d, defy'd his prince or peers,
Fast came the Doug LAs with his Scottish spears;
And, when proud Dou G LAs made his King his foe,
For Doug LAs, Piercy bent bis English bow.
Expell'd their native homes by adverse fate,
They knock'd alternate at each other's gate:
Then blaz'd the castle, at the midnight hour,
For him whose arms had shook its firmest row'r,

This might a Do U G LAs your protećtion claims ;
A wife a mother! Pity's softest names:-
The story of her woes indulgent bear,
And grant your suppliant all she begs, a tear.

| In confidence she begs ; and hopes to find - | Each English breast, like noble Piercy's, kind. * > * > - ...
