You patriots from shore to shore, ¶ In every known land, ¶ I hope you'll pay attention ¶ To a simple country man.

Enteres:- 11th Nov. '38
You patriots from shore to shore,
In every known land,
I hope you'll pay attention
To a simple country man;
It is my sole design to attract the mind
If you heroes one and all,
What happened to the earl of Leitrim
In the Co. Donegal.
11
It was on the 2nd Day Apr. 1878
From Manor Vaughan Castle
Lord Leitrimm took his flight
For the eviction courts in Dublin.
