Carthage’na.
 
Capital of New Grana’da, in South America, unsuccessfully attacked in 1747 by Admiral Vernon.   1
       
“Wasteful, forth
       
Walks the dire power of pestilent disease …
Such as, of late, at Carthagena quenched
The British fire. You, gallant Vernon, saw
The miserable scene; you, pitying, saw
To infant-weakness sunk the warrior’s arm.”
       
Thomson: Summer, 1034–43.
