Abstract:
This is a reprint of three poems written in colonial North Carolina whose subject matter represents what was to become the American and Southern mind. The first, published June 11, 1737 in the \"South Carolina Gazette\" presents feelings on the rights of freeborn Englishmen via analogy. The second poem, a Moravian hymn reprinted in both original German and its English translation, espouses the warmth of religious feeling and praise of God. The final poem, an Anglican hymn written to the 100 Psalm tune, was penned in 1759 by Royal Governor Arthur Dobbs and expressed a mixture of patriotism and piety that would often appear later in American verse and prose.
