Poem by James Maxwell

5. 3d Answer, By the Same

The Stewarts Race, tis true, oer Britain reignd,
And much their hands with blood of martyrs staind. 
At last did they the British throne resign, 
And left it to a more illustrious Line, 
Who are of truth and honour both possest, 
And each successor still becomes the best. 
Such noble Kings neer filld the British throne, 
And always best belovd where most theyre known. 
Now, —, take back thy lies again to hell, 
And tell thy master they of sulphur smell.
