Poetical Inscription, for an Altar to Independence At Kerrouchtry, the seat of Mr. Heron, written Summer 1795

THOU, of an independent mind
With soul resolv'd, with soul resigned;
Prepar'd pow’rs proudest frown to brave,
Who wilt not be, nor have a slave;
Virtue alone who dost revere,
Thy own reproach alone dost fear,
Approach this shrine, and worship here.
