"If war breaks out, our land we can defend; / Our willing hearts and hands we gladly lend / To guard our hearths and homes. Britannia's sons, / Though far from home, have learnt the use of guns. / This Russian scare has shewn what noble zeal / The colonies have for their country's weal; / And, what Great Britain can behold with pride, / 'Tis not for Foreign Powers to deride." - from the poem "Colonial Patriotism", page 60.
