JOHN PAULDING.
819
But you may take your sword in hand
To gain your liberty And if that you do conquer me
0, then you shall be free."
" The time it is improper
Our valor for to try, For if we take our swords in hand,
Then one of us must die; I am a man of honor,
With courage true and bold, And I fear not the man of clay,
Although he's cloth'd in gold."
He saw that his conspiracy
Would soon be brought to light; He begg'd for pen and paper,
And asked leave to write A line to General Arnold,
To let him know his fate, And beo- for his assistance;
But now it was too late.
