-Man may know With ease the hand of interposing Jove; And with what purpose, whether to exalt Or to depress---give strength or take away ; So all his aid is now not their's but our's! " Therefore STAND FAST---and whosoever, galld By arrow or by spear, dies---LET HIM DIE ! Death for his country shall not slur his fame--But his dear wife---his children after him--His house and heritage shall be secure--Drive but the Grecians from the SHORES of TROY!

Cowper's Homer.
