Beilby Porteus. (1731–1808)
 
 
1
    In sober state,
Through the sequestered vale of rural life,
The venerable patriarch guileless held
The tenor of his way. 1
          Death. Line 108.
2
    One murder made a villain,
Millions a hero. Princes were privileged
To kill, and numbers sanctified the crime. 2
          Death. Line 154.
3
    War its thousands slays, Peace its ten thousands.
          Death. Line 178.
4
    Teach him how to live,
And, oh still harder lesson! how to die. 3
          Death. Line 316.
