July 4th Celebration at The Shores

And hail the Day;
May it forever shine,
And prove our rights divine,
To bless the Day.*

*a verse from A Favorite Song. Sung on the Fourth of July, by a number of the true Sons of Columbia. Tune, ‘God save Great Washington.'”

The Mail; or, Claypoole’s Daily Advertiser, 8 July 1791, 2.
