To the Printer of the Essequebo and Demerary Gazette.
I Send you the following Lines, which you will oblige me by inserting in your paper, whatever may be your sentiments respecting their merits. They are, in my opinion, fully equal to those which lately appeared on the same subject in a contemporary print. The like beautiful irregularities and pleasing variety of measure may be perceived in both; indeed, there is such a striking similitude in these two efforts of true genius (which, you know, always disdains to be governed by common rules), that, lest you should suppose them to be the production of the same scholastic mind, I deem it proper to inform you, they were written by an A.B.C. friend of mine at Mahaica, who, after much solicitation, consented that they should be published. I am, Sir, your's, &c.
Stabroek, March 31, 1806.
Dedicated to the Remembrance of the deceased Lord Nelson.
Or matchless Heroes, and their noble train,
Shine forth to grace great George's happy reign,
Nelson, great Hero of the watery flood,
Has died imbru'd and welter'd in his blood,
His magnanimous battle off the Nile,
Will ever cause Britannia's sons to smile,
At Trafalgar he made his last defeat,
He lost his life, but conquer'd French fleet.
Nelson is dead, but yet the truth will tell,
How great he conquer'd, and how brave he fell.
Time yet will boast of his exalted fame
Of his achievements, and his glorious name.
