1777 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Gen. John Burgoyne

W. S., "On a late Transaction in America" Universal Magazine 61 (Supplement, 1777) 371.



The intrepid BURGOYNE many dangers went through,
And, the more that he pass'd, more appear'd to his view.
His march he continu'd, tho' impediments met;
Still pursued on his way, as his duty was set.
Over marshes and bogs, and extensive wide lakes,
But yet, after all, cou'd not get over GATES.
Hatton-place.
