January 7, 1777

The Pennsylvania Evening Post published a poem "By a YOUNG LADY."

W itness, ye sons of tyranny's black womb,
A nd see his Excellence victorious come!
S erene, majestic, see he gains the field!
H is heart is tender, while his arms are steel'd.
I ntent on virtue, and her cause so fair,
N ow treats his captive with a parent's care!
G reatness of soul his ev'ry action shows,
T hus virtue from coelestial bounty flows.
O ur GEORGE, by heav'n, destin'd to command,
N ow strikes the British yoke with prosp'rous hand.
