Inscription For An Altar Of Independence

At Kerroughtree, the Seat of Mr. Heron.

     Thou of an independent mind,
     With soul resolv'd, with soul resign'd;
     Prepar'd Power's proudest frown to brave,
     Who wilt not be, nor have a slave;
     Virtue alone who dost revere,
     Thy own reproach alone dost fear—
     Approach this shrine, and worship here.
