LANCASHIRE WORTHIES.

BY

FRANCIS ESPINASSE.

I

“ Hic manus, ob patriam pugnando vulnera passi,

Quique sacerdotes casti, dum vita manebat,
Quique pii vates, et Phæbo digna locuti,
Inventas aut qui vitam excoluere per artes,
Quique sui memores alios fecere merendo."

Æneid, vi. 660-65.

' Behold, a band
Of whom some suffered for their Fatherland;
With them are priests whose lives were undefiled,
And reverent bards on whom Apollo smiled.
Inventors, too, of useful arts are here,
And those whose worth has made their memory dear."

LONDON:
SIMPKIN, MARSHALL, & CO., STATIONERS' HALL COURT.
MANCHESTER: ABEL HEYWOOD & SON.

1874.
