On Brigadier General HILL.

1 Of manners gentle, yet a friend to truth,
2 With age not peevish, nor yet vain in youth:
3 Brave, yet humane, and blameless tho' severe;
4 His speech was open, and his heart sincere:
5 In courts unbrib'd, not factious tho' retir'd;
6 Most lov'd the Soldier, more the Man admir'd.
[Page 111]
7 A Queen his Mistress,
Queen Anne.
. and his Friend, Mankind;
8 His Fortunes! to yon little spot
Englefield Green.
9 Such once was Hill and various tho' his lot,
10 The same Companion, favour'd, or forgot.
