OUR WOMEN.
Invent new epithet to warm their page, And bid you live admired from age to age; With sweet applauses dwell on every name, Endear your memories and embalm your fame,
And thus the future bards shall soar sublime, And waft you glorious down the stream of time ; The breeze of panegyric fill each sail, And plaudits pure perfume the increasing gale.
Then freedom's ensign thus inscribed shall wave, " The patriot females who their country save ; " Till time's abyss absorb'd in heavenly lays, Shall flow in your eternity of praise.
