James Montgomery

Either India next is seen.
With the Ganges stretched between;
Ah! what horrors here have been.

War, disguised as commerce, came;
Britain, carrying sword and flame,
Won an empire,—lost her name.

But that name shall be restored,
Law and justice wield the sword.
And her God be here adored.

This is part of the long travel poem A Voyage Round the World in which, amongst many observations, James Montgomery reveals his strong anti-colonial, anti-slavery feelings.
