Om John Cary
Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. The age of chivalry has passed away; We cannot now on tourney-fields display Our strength and courage; neither did we flee From native land to find beyond the sea Freedom and justice; these we now possess, And need not seek them in 'the wilderness. Yet even now must we fierce battles fight, And firmly stand as champions of the right. Valor is needed if we hope to win Our victories over greed, and wrong and sin. The roses white must we preserve from stain, And other trophies by our valor gain. Then let each one who bears the Cary name Remember whence his shield and motto came; Remember, too, the one who brought them o'er The ocean's waves to this New England shore. 'all that the fathers have by valor gained Must by the sons be valiantly maintained. Then take the shield; go forward to the fight; Guard well the roses; may their silvery light Shine on brave deeds performed for truth and right.
