[120] finest productions of Whittier's pen. Singing of that “bold plowman of the wave” he proceeds:

Why, that hand is highest honor,
Than its traces never yet
Upon old memorial hatchments was
A prouder blazon set;
And the unborn generations, as they
Tread our rocky strand,
Shall tell with pride the story of
Their father's branded hand.
