From an ađual Perambulation.

By DAVID HUGHSON, LL.D. pusud.

. Pugh, Edward

VOL. I.

Nurse of Art! The CITY rear'd
In beauteous Pride her 'Tower encircled Head,
And, stretching Street on Street, by Thousands drew,
From twining woody Haunts, or the tough Yew
To bows strong straining, her aspiring Sons.

Then Commerce brought into the public Walk
The busy Merchant; the big Warehouse built;
Rais'd the strong Crane; choak'd up the loaded Street
With Foreign Plenty; and thy Stream, O Thames,
Large, gentle, deep, majestic, King of Floods !
Chose for his grand Resort!

THOMSON.
