(On the last page is the following.) ("Pilgrim Fathers, met under an Oak.) "See! Orchards, with their sweet rich fruit, Fields of corn and golden grain waving, Meadows, thick set with stacks of hay, Pastures, bleating flocks and lowing herds, And beautiful sweet singing birds. Flower gardens, court the food sight! With all the colours of delight! Ships with wide spread sails wafting, Golden treasures to their destined ports. Factories with thousand opperatives, And life like movements of machinery, Axes--Augers--screws--coaches--carriages, Looks--blocks, and best eight day clocks. Hail, Unequalled City! Tontine--State House And shading trees-- so charming! Bright and fair, by art and nature, And every smaller feature. An' where can vie, a place on earth? Within our investigation."
