Maine Lumberjacks          189
11      The Hamlins they are buried here
And Stricklands you all know, The Herseys and the Crosbys
Were honored years ago; With Albert Paine and James Dunning,
With Leonard March lies here And Dr. Pond who spoke to them
Of christian hope most dear.
12      In old Mount Hope's most sacred earth
The old stock they lie here, Their manly forms and noble deeds
To memory ever dear; They built our city here below
This Bangor we love too, And in this life they took a part
In what was just and true.
In Memoriam
Of John R. Graham now I speak
A tribute I '11 pay thee, You always stood for what was just
To help our good city; And though your body 's far away
In Quincy's churchyard there We hope your soul dwells with your God,
Is Bangor's earnest prayer.
