Sung by Miss Kate Montrose.

People we meet ever'y day that are very prone to say,
This world is ev'ry where devoid of truth,
But trouble, care And strife, and a disappointed life,
Will make skeptics of the old man and the youth;
But to-night, my friends, the object of my song
Is to prove such sayings altogether wrong.
There are men among the best, that have nobly stood the test,
For we tried them and we found them true as steel.

In the days of seventy-six, in our country's awful fix,
When the British sent their minions to our shore,
And the little patriot band, fighting hard for fatherland,
Felt the rigors and the sufferings of the war;
And when ev'ry heart was sinking with despair,
There was one who nobly faced the battle's glare,
'Till the victory was won-'twas brave Gen'ral Washington;
Yes, we tried him, and we found him true as steel.
