Note
  • Part of the library digital collection of Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800
  • Verse in eleven numbered stanzas; first line: The rising sun bespeaks the mournful day
  • In the tenth stanza reference is made to Christopher Monks who was severely wounded in the massacre and expected to die. In fact, he eventually recovered; therefore, it is likely that the poem was issued at Boston soon after the incident while Monk's condition was in doubt
  • Text in two columns; relief cuts of five coffins at head and of a single coffin at head of second column (Reilly 1219 and 1214)
