THE COURAGIOUS COMMANDER; OR, A BRIEF RELATION OF THAT MOST NOBLE ADVENTURE OF SIR CLOUDESLY SHOVELL, IN THE BA Y OF DUBLIN, ON GOOD FR YDA Y, IN BRINGING THE PELLICAN FRIG AT OUT OF THEIR HARBOUR IN TRIUMPH AND VIC10RY.

Old James and his Teagues they did stand and behold Our noble commander, couragious and bold, Who ventur'd just close to the banks of their shore And laid the proud enemy sprawling in gore : With fire and sword, boys, we enter'd the bay, And brought the brave Pellican frigat away.
Our noble commander first enter'd aboard, On the Monmouth yacht; this did courage afford To all the brave sailors of Protestant pride, Who vow'd they wou'd venture to dye by his side ; Then crossing the bar they enter'd the bay, And brought the brave Pellican frigat away.
