From Koerner's Poems

“C. Redding”
[Cyrus Redding][1]
The Morning Chronicle (January 30, 1815)

Stately thy domes arose,—lofty and vast,
    Thy golden palaces once glittered bright,
    The eye was ravish'd with the dazzling sight,
From splendor, on to splendor hurrying fast.

1815.2
Petition for a New War!
Anon
The Champion (January 29, 1815)

The following is a minute of proceedings,
Speeches, replies, resolutions, and pleadings,
Deliver'd at a meeting of various contractors,
Underwriters, newsmen, corn dealers, factors,
And others concern'd in the horrid ruination,
Which a GENERAL PEACE must infallibly occasion.
