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.
