Maine Lumberjacks 133
16      Our worthy Captain Lovewell
among them there did die, They killed Lieut. Robbins,
and wounded good young Frye, Who was our English Chaplain;
he many Indians slew, And some of them he scalp'd
when bullets round him flew.
17      Young Fullam too 111 mention,
because he fought so well, Endeavouring to save a man,
a sacrifice he fell; But yet our valiant Englishmen
in fight were ne'er dismay'd, But still they kept their motion,
and Wyman's Captain made,
18      Who shot the old chief Paugus,
which did the foe defeat, Then set his men in order,
and brought off the retreat; And braving many dangers
and hardships in the way, They safe arriv'd at Dunstable,
the thirteenth day of May.
