“Old ISELDON, tho' scarce in modern song
Nam'd but in scorn, may boast of honour'd days;
For many a darling child of Science there
Hath trimm'd his lamp, and wove his laurel crown.

And ISELDON, as ancient records tell,
In distant time as now, had much to boast
Of other praise, in Nature's bounty rich.
For thither, then, from London's hectic town
Her fam'd chalybeates oft allur’d the sick:
Her fresh lactariau draughts the babe sustain'd. Fox.
