Description

Quoted on title-page:" I hate that Drum's discordant sound, Parading round, and round, and round, To me it talks of ravag'd plains, And burning towns, and ruin'd swains, And mangled limbs, and dying groans, And Widow's tears, and Orphan's moans, And all that Misery's hand bestows. To swell the catalogue of human woes."
