Dumfries Epigram C

Epigram
To a Club in Dfrs. Who styled themselves the D Loyal Natives and exhibited violent party work and intemperate Loyalty . . . . 10th June 1794

PRAY, who are the Natives the Rabble so ven’rate?
They ‘re our true ancient Natives, and they breed undegen’rate
The ignorant savage that weather’d the storm,
When the man and the Brute differed but in form.
