Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


England, our mother’s mother! Come and see
A greater England here! O come, and be
At home with us, your children, for there runs
The same blood in our veins as in your sons;
The same deep-seated love of Liberty
Beats in our hearts. We speak the same good tongue:
Familiar with all songs your bards have sung,
Those large men, Milton, Shakespeare, both are ours.
Stoddard.—Guests of the States.
