1778.
The American women, during the revolution, excelled their na­ture. Europe heard, with wonder and regret, of their constancy and devotion to the cause of hberty; and their spirit and firmness has been the theme of many excellent lyrics, both in this country, and the old world. We have several French ballads, commemorat­ing their patriotism.
PUBLIC SPIRIT OF THE WOMEN.
Though age at my elbow has taken his stand,
And Time has stretch'd o'er me his wrinkling hand;
Our patriot fair like a charm can inspire,
In three-score-and-ten, twenty's spirit and fire.
