Campbell, John (Duke of Argyll and Greenwich)
BRITON behold, if patriot worth be dear,/ A shrine that claims thy tributary tear;/ Silent that tongue, admiring Senates heard:/ Nerveless that arm, opposing legions fear'd:/ Nor less, O CAMPBELL! thine the pow'r to please,/ And give to grandeur all the grace of ease./ Long from thy life let kindred heroes trace/ Arts, which ennoble still the noblest race./ Others may owe their future fame to me;/ I borrow immortality from thee.
