In British an knowledge he views his extractions

In British an knowledge he views his extracctions
At a decendant of honour of fame and renown.
A friend to his tenants and heard to no factions.
There are few such gentlemen now to be found
Come home I advise you your slaves are behind you
Your tenants are pining you stripped them so bare
Poor sould they may envy the boys of Glenfarne
In famed Kiltyclogher and Tottenhams fair
And she who elopes in her true lover's arms
Gets five pounds reward in Tottenham's fair

A chapel is erected with a dignified steeple
Just sixty feet high from the base to the square
