burgoyne's overthrow.
This is a pretty just account
Of Burgoyne's legions whole amount.
Who came across the Northern Lakes
To desolate our happy States.
Their brass cannons we have got all—
Fifty-six—both great and small;
And ten thousand stand of arms,
To prevent all future harms;
Stores and implements complete,
Of workmanship exceeding neat;
Covered wagons in great plenty,
And proper harness, no way scanty.
Among our prisoners there are
Six Generals, of fame most rare;
Six members of their Parliament—
Reluctantly they seem content;
Three British Lords, and Lord Bellcaras
Who came, our country free to harass.
Two Baronets of high extraction,
Were sorely wounded in the action.
