304                                  THE COW CHACE.
For greatly one was signaliz'd,
That fought on Chestnut Hill;
And Canada immortaliz'd The vender of the pill.
Yet the attendance upon Proctor,
They both might have to boast of;
For there was business for the doctor, And hats to be disposed of.
Let none uncandidly infer,
That Stirling wanted spunk;
The self-made peer had sure been there, But that the peer was drunk.
But turn we to the Hudson's banks, Where stood the modest train ;
With purpose firm, though slender ranks, Nor car'd a pin for Wayne.
For them the unrelenting hand
Of rebel fury drove; And tore from every genial band
Of friendship and of love.
