Martin the Armenian

The Armenians in America By Malcolm Vartan Malcom Published 1919

Original from Harvard University

Page 56

"But noble Digges carries the Bell away

(Lass ! want of eggs made so small the essay)

His two Armenians from Turkey sent

Are now most busy on his brave attempt.

And has he stock sufficient for next yeare

Ten thousand pounds of Silk would then appeare

And to the skies his worthy deeds upreare

And to the skies his worthy deeds upreare.
. . . . . . . . . . .

Courage, brave Sir : Sith Ayde from God is sent

Proceed, go on, drive forth thy great inteny.
