his delivering the following SENTENCE at the COUNTY MEETING at ABINGDON, on TUESDAY November 7, 1775.
"I WILL HAVE IT KNOWN THERE IS RESPECT DUE TO A LORD."
"_Room for my LORD! Virtue stand by and bow._"
THE THIRD EDITION.
Printed for JOHN WHEEBLE, No. 22, Fleet-Street.
Too long have Britain's sons with proud disdain
Survey'd the gay Patrician's titled train,
Their various merit scann'd with eye severe,
Nor learn'd to know the peasant from the peer:
At length the Gothic ignorance is o'er,
And vulgar brows shall scowl on LORDS no more;
Commons shall shrink at each ennobled nod,
And ev'ry lordling shine a demigod:
By CRAVEN taught, the humbler herd shall know,
How high the Peerage, and themselves how low.
Illustrious Chief, your eloquence divine
Shall raise the whole right
