A FRAGMENT.
Then through the lakes Montgomery takes,
I wat he was na slaw, man; Down Lowrie's burn he took a turn,
And Carleton did ca', man; But yet, what-reck, he, at Quebec,
Montgomery-like did fa', man, Wi' sword in hand, before his band,
Amang his en'mies a', man.
Poor Tammy Gage, within a cage,
Was kept at Boston ha', man; Till Willie Howe took o'er the knowe
For Philadelphia, man; Wi' sword and gun he thought a sin
Guid Christian blood to draw, man : But at New York, wi' knife and fork,
Sir-lion he hacked sma', man.
Burgoyne gaed up, like spur and whip, Till Fraser brave did fa', man ;
Then lost his way, ae misty day, In Saratoga shaw, man.
